I stopped by the Orvis shop on my way home tonight and picked up some orange zonker strips, some wire, some flash, some lead, and some really nice dubbing. I also realized I hit Angler's Pro Shop over the weekend and never even pulled out the stuff I bought there to use. I didn't have much time tonight but I decided to work on a few attractor nymphs. I got some really cool rainbow flashabou that I thought would look neat as ribbing. Between that and a mix between olive squirrel dubbing and some olive brown ice dubbing, I came up with some interesting patterns that I can't wait to try out. I love the multi-color effect on the ribbing.
I tied all on scud hooks, using tungsten beads in size 16 and 18. I ribbed with the flashabou and small gold UTC ultrawire. I tried one with a dubbed body. I really dig this squirrel dubbing and I want some more in different colors. It's really buggy.
All have a single strip of pearl flashabou for the wing case.
