Similar to the Chenille Nymph, the Poodle is a simple fly pattern to tie. *The Marabou tufts are tied in at 4 regular invervals along the shank to form a crest.

This is a very mobile lure and is best fished by casting out and leaving it, with either a very slow retrieve or just keeping in touch with it as it drifts around. Takes are usually positive and solid.
