The original 88 was developed in New England back in the 70's; apparently it got it's name when the first one caught 88 fish in a 2 day trip.
Doubled up on the wooduck on this one to get a more substantial surrounding wing; whether the fish care or not is unknown at present. Also subbed peacock herl for floss in the front portion of the body (been doing a lot of drywall work and my fingers are pretty chewed up - not optimal for handling floss).

hook - Mustad 9671 #4
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rear body - medium wire red
front body - peacock herl
wing - woodduck flank (2)
hackle - hen grizzly


Regards,
Scott
