The Reaper....from the Clinic on Flies Guides Want

We had a lot of folks asking about this fly developed by Bruce Mardick.  Here's is a picture of my version which is pretty close to the one that Bruce tied on March 10, 2012.  This is a very heavy fly tied on a size 6 TMC 5263 (3XL heavy shank streamer hook).  It has a tungsten cone and is wrapped with lead wire to make it drop immediately to the bottom.  A large olive marabou tail with some flash, centipede legs (med), hot orange or bright red UTC wire (med) wrapped through an olive/yellow or brown saddle hackle.

This has consistently caught fish on every stream where its been used in Colorado and Wyoming.
