Pattern Description
The illustrious Kelly Galloup came up with this cool streamer called the Zoo Cougar. Kelly has some very interesting ideas about streamer designs and fishing and has written a book on the subject called Modern Streamers for Trophy Trout. This is a great book and brings up some thought provoking ideas about how and why fish chase these things down. The Zoo Cougar is really a pretty simple pattern and a good one to help start you on the road to spinning hair. Grab some big hooks, some deer hair, mallard flank, marabou, calftail and sparkle braid and get started!
