Came across these sketches/signs for the ‘Tattooed Angler’ on a NJ Fishing Blog. Unfortunately, the TA never put out the name of his shop to further check his work with fish or flies. Perhaps someone knows the Tattooed Angler?

2T Mini Bugger

This is a very straight forward pattern that I tied several years ago. It is a size 12 , slightly curved shank hook. The two notable factors I want to mention are the tail and the hot reddish orange feather fibers atop the tail like the B.C. Little Fort Leech. The tail is a multi-colored marabou tail from a boa I bought at a craft store. The boa was about five feet long and comprised of black, grey, tan and white marabou hackles. I simply pinched a tail size portion from the boa’s core and cut it flush to the core, then tie it on the shank as usual. Then I affix the hackle fibers from the hot orange  hackle atop the marabou tail. The body is black with dark blue highlights sparkle chenille. A small hackle is palmered up the body and tied off behind the bead head. A Starling feather was used just behind the bead head. The 2T is similar to many such patterns…I note it because of the boa as a tying material.  

I have most success with this pattern in shoals and at the edge of the drop. I use an Intermediate Line (Clear). I go bigger for deeper water.
