Green Squirrel Badger – Fly Tying Maryland Streamers

This pattern created in 2019 has been one of my more successful streamers in the tailwaters of Maryland. The body and tail colors can be varied to give it a different look if you want to imitate any particular baitfish but it works well as a generic attractor pattern.

Hook: Streamer 2x-3x long
Thread: Black
Tail: Squirrel tail
Body: Silver Mylar tinsel
Rib: Dark wire
Throat: White marabou
Wing: Indian saddle feather, badger
