Golden Retriever

I first discovered this fly on a landlocked salmon trip to Maine.  As far as salmon streamers go it was tiny, tied on a size 8 3x long hook.  It seemed like it would be a natural for panfish.  Crappie lose their minds over this fly.  It is tied in other colors including gold, white, pink, peach and root beer.
