Popsicle

Name Popsicle
Hook Mustad 36890 or equivalent, Size 1/0-2/0
Tag Flat Silver Tinsel
Wing Red Marabou with Silver Flashabou or Krystal Flash
Collar Pink Marabou
Head Red

Popsicle  is one of the "Alaskabou" series flies developed by George Cook that includes Showgirl, Tequila Sunrise, Pixie's Revenge, and Candy Cane. These flies have proven themselves for silvers, pinks, and chum salmon in addition to steelhead.

Note: Use a lot of Marabou on this and other Marabou patterns. It tends to shrink down quite a bit when it's wet.
