Synthetic Yak Streamer

Big Taper, Little Bulk

I'll be honest, I got all fired up to tie some big meat when Lance brought in some of his for lake trout.  I had been messing with a lot of synthetic fibers, but synthetic yak is one of my favorites due to how it flows in the water, and how it keeps bulk.  This fly really isn't super hard to tie, it just takes a little bit of time.  Feel free to mess with colors, and even change the hook and eye if you want.  This type of fly also works really well when tied on a tube!
