The epoxy streamer shown here is a must for Idaho fly fishing for trout, salmon and steelhead. It is a very easy tie and almost indestructible. Its casts easily and the action is life-like. I would suggest your tying this pattern on a 1-0 hook or larger. Use your imagination for colors that will fish most successfully on your local waters. Next to the color shown here, I persoanlly have been very successful with it tied in olive green.
