I've been getting into tying big articulated streamers lately. Before I get more into this, I discovered not to long ago that the fur my dog sheds that usually ends up in the garbage is the perfect fly tying medium. So, I started grooming him and saving the underfur. I have one gallon bagful so far. I have used it in a few very productive new nymph patterns. It was just yesterday that I realized it would make a mad streamer head!
The best product of my effort so far has been this pattern: I call it Bighead.
With any luck later this year the big Brown Trout that inhabit the Farmington river will be chowing it down.
