"Grizzly" it's not just for "Buggers"
These feathers are very versatile and can be used for many streamer patterns. When combined with other saddle hackle can give very life like and natural looking forage fish patterns. When you feel creative and add color you can achieve some very good attractor patterns.
Most grizzly hackle can be a bit on the narrow side, especially when purchased as "bugger packs" but their price is reasonable and when teamed up with wider saddle hackle the effects can work well.
The Brown Olive Ghost with its grizzly hackle gives this streamer that shadow effect.
The vibrant colors of this streamer with its yellow grizzly hackle makes a fine flashy attractor pattern, and possibly a natural "Perch" pattern.
This pattern uses a natural grizzly feather. It could perhaps represent a variety of minnows found everywhere. Or it can work very effectively as a "smelt" pattern, for which it was tied to represent. "Hogsback"
So try a few grizzly streamers, you'll be surprised how good some of your patterns can be.
