threw this up because Finn asked about it.
It casts like a piece of yarn and flares into a pinfish in the water
it's not terribly photogenic
best I could do in short order, and i blew back the marabou, otherwise it sticks straight out
size 6 4x-long stainless (same shank as a size 2, and size 2 works well)
Black thread (the epoxy picked up red dye from the rooster saddles over time)
Everything is tied at the back of the hook
a few flashabou strands
pair rooster saddles
pair barred hen saddles
marabou feather wrapped as hackle collar
you could quit at the thread wrap on the hook and fish it
super-glue doll eyes
wet the feathers back and epoxy the eyes and hook
you can mix colors, chartreuse, blue is a great marabou collar.
it's a fly rod cocahoe minnow
We invented it on a Fence Lake trip Many years ago, so we named it Fence Lake Roach
We also got into schooling reds beating bait against our feet that trip and it caught many fish.
But I've caught Many specs drifting SP with it
