Awesome Lake Brookie

Awesome Lake Brookie

Tie on your thread and marabou for the tail. Wrap the thread forward covering the butt ends of the marabou as smooth as you can.

Tie in the tinsel and body material. Wrap thread back to the bend, building a smooth under body.

Wrap the thread forward followed by the body material and tinsel. Tie off olive thread.

Attach black thread and tie in an olive marabou wing.

Tie in a peacock herl topping followed by the white buck tail and orange hackle fiber throat.

Add painted yellow and black eyes.

Perfect. Now all I have to do is find someplace that has Brookies. They have been few and far between lately.
