I've never heard of a 'double loop'. Are you sure you didn't mishear someone saying 'dubbing loop'?

I just use a standard dubbing loop for it.

Tie in your lead, then your marabou tail. Then take your thread and make a loop at the bend of the hook. Leave it a few inches long. You'll get a feel for how long after a while. Then wind the thread to the eye, leaving the loop at the bend.

Place hair loosely on top of the loop and twist it a bunch of times. It'll make a dubbing rope. Dub that to the eye, tie off, pick out, and trim.

A dubbing twister is handy for this, but definitely not mandatory.

What streamers are going to be tied? I'm thinking of a clouser style Mickey Finn and/or Black nose Dace pattern. Did a little experimenting with both today, anyone have a preference?

Mine is going to be a sculpin pattern, large cone head, pretty big fly for catching the big bad boys.

Guys- Was in Oregon this weekend for both trout and Steelhead. In a flyshop in Eugene I found the following fly, which is a Bordens Magnum Roach. It is designed by Robert Borden, who runs Hareline, a company we have all done business with I am sure.

For browns there are times I like to throw something big brown and ugly, and this sure seemed to fit the bill.

I did buy some tungsten cone heads, and I was thinking of making it with those for the action it imparts, and also to run deeper. So should I be able to master this thing, everyone gets a Borden's Magnum Roach!

GUYS - all due apologies, been trying for 30 minutes to get the image to show here. Tried all sorts of url's, no luck, just photo anxiety. I could only get it here really big, or not at all. Just follow the link, and I am open to suggestions. Normally don't struggle with pics too much, but having issues today.

It really caught my eye, but then again anyone who has every seen me walk through a fly shop with $50 bucks in my pocket knows that a lot of stuff catches my eye.

Tom, thanks for the photo. Is that a link to imageshack, or did you download and link to another post elsewhere. I have posted plenty of photos, but struck out with that one. JG

I saved it to my desktop, opened it in photoshop, dumbed it down and followed normal picture posting procedure from the sticky in the general forum.
