This is my first attempt at (Charlie Craven's version of) The Sex Dungeon. I like the addition of the rabbit zonker strip on the top of the fly compared to the original, I think it looks better but its all preference. I use these all the time and it pains me to pay $8 each time I lose one. Now I only had to pay $90 in materials to build them - some solid cost-savings analysis!

The spun deer hair head on this kind of sucks but for a first attempt it seems like it will work. Plenty of time to practice. Anyways, can you tell which one is mine and which one is store bought crap made in China?

First spun deer hair head and you did it around dumbell eyes? Nicely done! Spinning hair is alot of fun, but most of mine are a mess.
I recently covered my fly tyiing area ith a piece of felt, which keeps all those stray bits of feather, dub and thread from going every where in the room and you can brush them all up with a tooth brush. Exept when you spin hair, that stuff permanently becomes one with the felt.

I should note I've attempted a few flies with spun hair before in a tying class... But they were awful.

I shot the sh;t with Charlie the other week while I was buying this stuff and he had some nice pointers about it. His store is so freakin sweet, loaded with tying materials/supplies. He said it's all about the super high-test thread you use to spin the hair. He ties most of the fly with normal 6/0 black thread to keep the bulk down and then uses natural color 280 Denier thread (the HEAVY stuff) to really crank on it and get it to spin. It's slippery too and helps with the sliding of the hair on the hook shank.

His tutorials online are awesome though for whoever is interested in his flies, that one included.

Yeah that looks sweet! I just fished that black rabbit strip streamer yesterday and it epitomized chuck n duck with my 5 wt. Had some pretty good movement in the water when stripped quickly but dropped like a stone otherwise. Given the movement from the rabbit and the way it dropped I think it will hammer bass when fished like a Texas rigged worm.

Few years ago I made a huge change and began tying articulated streamers heavy, I mean heavy. These contain large tungsten hourglass eyes plus a wrap(or two) of .03, two stainless saltwater hooks, beads, intruder wire....I have even added a Pyrex rattle this year. Lol. I use as much natural material as possible to "hold onto water". I can bounce them down any run or scour the depths of pools for those large daytime sensitive Browns. Problem is you cast them like hardware or throw them like a baseball but getting them to the bottom is not a problem. Lol

Did someone mention rabbit strip? These are easy peasy one material streamers for bass/pike. OK, an eye...two material, but not necessary.
