Slonch Donkey Streamer

Recommended Posts

This year I started the journey into doing some tying videos, Brian Wise-esque type tying videos, so that I could show some patterns that I have had guys asking about for years! Please know these aren't teaching videos designed to teach you any specific technique, they're just to *quickly* show the steps of a specific pattern. 

I started the year with a couple simple patterns that weren't my own originals, the Double Deceiver and some variations of a Single Deceiver, but this week I uploaded the first of several original patterns that will be coming out soon. Go check it out:

 

 

The Slonch Donkey is an original pattern of mine with influences from several tiers such as Kelly Galloup and Mike Schmidt; it's a single articulated streamer coming in around 6"-6.5". I originally designed it for Brown Trout on the White River in AR, but have since used it more for Striped Bass in our local (OK) striper season. It has a very serpentine swimming motion with a slight drop from the head on the pause while the marabou and bucktail both work to keep moving and undulating all while keep the correct shape. Give one a try and see what happens! You can contact me to order as well.
