Turkey Streamer Fly

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

I shot a turkey this season, and I plucked all the feathers and used them for this fly. Its an awesome little streamer with lots of movement. Great for trout on a stream or river. I used both the tail feathers and two types of marabou from this turkey. The turkey tasted great, and was a hit on Thanksgiving morning.

Hook: Any streamer hook - Im using size 8
Tail and top wing: Turkey marabou, the larger dark feathers
Under wing: Turkey Marabou, the smaller, lighter feathers
Body wrap: Turkey tail feather fibers
