Showgirl was the first of the "Alaskabou" series flies developed by George Cook that includes Pixie's Revenge, Tequila Sunrise, Popsicle, 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.
