Slush Rocket

Cheech - January, 2023

Every thanksgiving my Mom makes a special beverage that consists of a frozen fruit juice mixture that you mix with Sprite.  We have been drinking "Slush" for years, so it was about time to tie a fly that commemorates it.  This fly was designed to have maximum motion with sections of the fly that are built to move differently.  The front has a nice marabou collar that has a ton of flow, and the back half is pretty much just buggy chenille and rabbit, so when stripped, they kind of make the fly wiggle.  This one can obviously be tied in a wide variety of colors and sizes, but this particular color and size has already tested really well on some of our local rivers.
