Post Killer Streamer: Rubber Band Special

Several of you know that I am always trying new/crazy fly patterns. I have discovered one that just nails them if you are streamer fishing.

Basically, just tie a normal streamer; but, cut about a 1 1/2" rubber band tail and tie it in. I tie it in with the curl of the tail sticky upward. Use a wire wrap to help secure it going back up the body. No special rubber band; just the tan colored ones. I trim the tie part to make it narrow and to not bulk up the body. It is amazing the action it gives the streamer. You might want to tie a few. They are not that durable and sometimes you miss a few when the strike the tail.

Good Luck!
