Hey Chickasaw Bill!

Recommended Posts

Found a new fly pattern tied with marabou and tinsel, called

THE OZARK MARABOU STREAMER. Itis red, yellow and black.

Tied on a #4 hook. Wondering if they use it for bass or trout.

I like the pattern but would use chartreuse and black I think, and fish it for bass.

Have you ever heard of it?

Those darn bass are mean suckers. :lol:


All my fly rods are designed for trout, and I have concerns about fishing for bass with them.

All but my 8 wt. It is 9'6" generation II graphite, and I use it for steelhead. For Bass, I would think

a fiberglass rod would be a better bet. Am I wrong, again?

Heck , I have been tying stuff very close to that for over 25 years ,


have used dubbed bodys , chenniel , peacock herl , and about every color you can think of


bead heads , hour glass eyes , lead wrapped around the hook shank


when I was teaching folks how to tie , that was the second style I would show em , first being a wolly bugger


have cuaght white bass , black bass , crappie , and trout on em , along with big red ears perch

I had never heard of the pattern. Living in the Pacific Northwet, I guess a fly named

after the Ozarks is not well known here. Seems when you get into marabou and flash

just about anything goes. Steelhead colors seem to run to red, pink and black.


I suspect that the fish take the red and pink for eggs. I have no idea what the black

could represent. Just something to eat I suppose.

It has been quite a while since I tied flies or went fishing. This is the first time I've seen a Norvise. My first thought was, "That's cheating!!"


No way I could justify a $300 vise, but it's fun to watch.

J Bar, most of the better vices run close to the $300.00. I have toyed with the idea of buying one.

My forty year old Price Vice has just about seen it's lifetime use. Jaws are worn and do not grip

well. The old Thompson B vise I gave my Grandson was like a tank. I don't think he uses it tho.

I think I paid $30.00 for it when St. Peter was a fisherman.


I did buy his bobbins. They work ok, but are sort of a novelty. My old bobbins do just as
