I got it at the Orvis Store near my house, it's called barred bloodquill marabou. I like to brush it out with a tooth brush.
This fly is a copy of a fly called the Scarpion. Its tied on a circular Ahrex hook for carp, bass and panfish like the fly but it's harder to hook up fish. The magic of the fly comes with the stop part of the retrieve. The fly flutters to the bottom and gets strikes. You could use regular marabou and change out the ep brush for marabou by palmering it around the head of the hook. I like to fish blue at this creek next to my house, but my first choice for the fly would be yellow, brown or rust. This fly is like a bass jig and has motion when not retrieved. I have a few bass flies that were initially carp flies, like the carps craw for bass, I'm still perfecting it but you dont even need to retrieve it a it looks like a fighting crayfish.
