Golden Retriever/ Cactus Bugger

I tied up some golden retriever/cactus bugger streamers recently. Trout really seem to nail this streamer, highly productive pattern.  Carp also are very quick to take this pattern as well.  I will be tying more in orange and tan....slowly gearing up for the new season.  The best sizes to have this pattern in is size 10 and 8.

Recipe for the flies in the picture:
Hook: Streamer hook 3X, Size 8
Tail: White Marabou or Tan marabou
Bead head: Gold 4mm
Thread: Red
Body: White Estaz or Tan Estaz
