Green Meanie Wears Chickabou Collar

The Green Meanie is a stillwater pattern, but would be quite suitable in moving water. The fly is a bit smaller than most stillwater patterns I fish. Tied on a size 12 hook, the Chickabou collar was created by inserting a section of Chickabou, torn from the hackle stem, into a dubbing loop…then spinning the loop then winding the collar. The tail fibers are also from a chickabou feather tip. The body is from some materials Jean Paul Lipton (Roughfisher) sent me a few years back. The green dumbbell eyes, tied in atop the shank, will add just enough weight to help the fly sink and to also cause the fly to ride point upward. The theory is it helps reduce snags along the bottom.
