Feathered Game Changer- Slider Version

Cheech- October, 2018

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! ~ Cheech
