Yellow Fox Streamer

Fly Patterns, Fly Swap Winter 2008

Yellow Fox Streamer fly pattern


Tied by Scott Obremski

HOOK: #6-#14 Standard 4X long streamer hook (Mustad 79580, Mustad R74, Daiichi 2220, etc. I use size #8 and #10 the most.)
THREAD: Black
HEAD: Black glass bead (I use black glass craft beads from Michael’s)
TAIL: Yellow marabou
BODY: Kreinik gold braid (also from Michael’s – look in the needlepoint area)
UNDERWING: Yellow marabou.

OVERWING: Fox squirrel tail (grey squirrel would probably work, but I prefer Fox squirrel as it adds more red/orange color to the fly.  Become/befriend a squirrel hunter or look for roadkill!)

Straightforward tie.  I got this pattern from Ross Mueller’s second book Fly Fishing Midwestern Spring Creeks–Angler’s Guide to Trouting the Driftless Area.  It has been a great pattern especially during the early season in the SW, but catches fish everywhere I use it.  I think it may be taken as a baby brown trout.  A friend of mine who frequently spinfishes for trout called it the fly equivalent of the gold and black Rapala.  A single yellow fox was responsible for a banner day including a grand slam out of a single hole a couple of years ago during the early season on a creek in the SW.  I highly recommend both of Ross Mueller’s books
