Feathered Game Changer - Slider Version

Maximum Movement Meets Slider Head

This fly really needs very little introduction, nor am I the creator of this concept.  Blane Chocklett is the godfather of jointed flies, and I first saw this demonstrated by Mike Schmidt, so kudos to them for sharing their ideas.  Those dudes know a thing or two about the big stuff.  What I decided to do is incorporate a very buggy color of hackle (Barred Dark Ginger) into a sculpin looking streamer that moves like crazy.  I also added a slider head because the deer hair really pushes water makes the fly wiggle and turn on the pause.  Keep in mind that you can tie these in about a billion color combos and sizes.  Tie them on your line with a loop knot, give it quick strips, and watch it dance in the water!

NOTE: You can either use the Gamakatsu B10S or the Fulling MIll Streamer Stripper hook for this fly.  You can also use either the barbed or non-barbed Carp Bonio hook for this fly.  I also just use a lighter color of Bruiser Blend Jr. like Cream, White, Tan, Gray, or Unicorn Mane for the beard on this fly.
