Actually, it's a standard Puglisi Sparkle Brush (packaged dubbing brush) . I've just added long strands of flash in a couple of spots. The tail is Finn Raccoon flanked by flash on 3 sides, then the dubbing brush, with more long hanks of flsh interspersed through the body. I like trying to maintain the wide body baitfish profile. It stays nice and fat in the water.

I also brush the daylights out of all that body material with an old soft bristle toothbrush. That's what makes it so full looking. Up close you can see that the brushing also blends the materials together. It's a nice effect .

Tying Secret #101: Brush yer streamer bodies.

I like the Smallie-licious better. It is more shad like. I do like this bait perfectly well. It looks a lot like a Deceiver
Nice Bug,Sir
