So I've been on a bit of an articulated streamer kick lately. Mostly I've been doing the same body and experimenting with different heads. Here's a recipe for the body (which is the same for front and rear):

 

Hooks: TMC 200R #4, Mustad 34001 #1

Tail: Marabou

Body: Ice Dub (normally dubbed)

"Hackle": Dubbing loop of FTD's "Sea Dragon Dubbing" (mix of angora & rubber legs), palmered like hackle.

Wing: Zonker/Rabbit strip

Joint: 25# mono threaded through 3 small glass beads

Flash: Pearl Flashabou

 

Head options: Ice Dub, Senyo Dub, SF blend, Fish Skull

 

With a Fish Skull Head:

Ice Dub:

Finally, since I can't leave a fly alone until I try it with a V-style or "Kinky" head made of SF, here is my Kinky Tickler ("tickler" because it's ar-'ticul'ated):

Thanks for the positive feedback, all. I appreciate it.

 

Tom, the pink cheek is the same material as the rest of the head. On the yellow/white, it is Ice Wing (longer version of Ice Dub), and on the Kinky fly it is the same as SF blend but a different brand.
