Ant's Special Streamer

It's a dreary, rainy day so I thought that I would catch up on tying some flys. I noticed that I was low on one of my favorite streamers, a pattern I created and called Ant's Special Streamer(very original name, I know.) I've had luck with this one on panfish and bass, and some limited success on trout. I'm going to pit it against some steelhead at the end of next month; we'll see how that turns out.

What I really like about the pattern is that when the light hits it, the synthetics in the tail shine through the grizzly hackle, giving it a very lively and unique quality.
