    A fully synthetic articulated streamer that holds its profile.......in other words, the unicorn.

    As this streamer thing evolves I've noticed that the patterns are getting more simple. 

    Is it time yet for a list of the top 3?

    So far, for me, the ace in the hole is a #1 Bulkhead Deciever (non-articulated, and 4" long). Gray/White and Chart./White. Hands down the best streamer pattern I've thrown so far.

    Do you have a link on how to tie this pattern? Looks deadly.

    Here's the basics.  I do an actual Deciever tail (saddle feathers) on mine. Some guys don't, but if you don't then you shouldn't call it a Bulkhead DECIEVER !   Right?

    I've started using the body tubing on them like Gunner B. does and that's a good move because it eliminates 2 big wads of bucktail... so it doesn't take 30 minutes to get it soaked and working right.  

    Mine turn out like this....   IMG_20171202_225801010_LL~2.jpg

    Those are #2's that I use for Whites.  I use a bigger one for Smallies and trout.

    They aren't anything pretty to look at but the fish will flat kill 'em.   Use a loop knot.... very important

    Just an observation but very similar in profile and action to billethead shuttlecock pattern. I tied a couple of these and I am anxious to try them out. Thanks Brian and wrench. Addicted to ffto!
