This is not the season for fishing in New England so I'm experimenting. I've tied an assortment of streamers using just one bunch of Congo Hair in an off-white color as a single bundle surrounding the hook shank, tied it off and then added various colors of waterproof markers for belly and back shading, gills, lateral lines, mackerel stripes or bleeding etc. With no immediate plans to try them I wonder if I'm wasting my time. Maybe others have played with this ultra-minimalist technique. ?????
