The Fly was described in Flies, Ties, & Techniques: A Practical Guide To Tying 50
Irresistible Flies by Charles Jardine (ISBN-10: 0-7641-3906-1) which I recommend for fly
Tootsie Roll, from Lee Weil
Tail: Brown Marabou/Krystal-Flash
Body: Orange Chenille
Back: Peacock Herl
Rib: Grizzly Hackle
Tie on thread base and weight front 1/3 of shank with lead-free round wire.
Tie in tail, "sandwiching" green Krystal flash between 2 layers of brown marabou.
Tie in grizzly hackle by the tip; then 3 to 5 strands of peacock herl.
Tie in and wrap orange chenille.
Lay peacock herl on top and tie down.
Wrap grizzly hackle forward and whip-finish.
This pattern is a variation of the old faithful Woolly-Bugger. I find it catches fish when
the conventional colors don't produce.
I've caught fish on it from the Adirondacks to North Carolina; both trout and smallmouth
(tie bigger for bass).
This fly can be tied as a bead-head pattern.
