Doug and Jbird -- The barred material is called "Senyo's Predator Wrap." It's great stuff that I recently discovered at a show when Greg Senyo (steelhead guide in the Midwest) gave me some to try out. It's a long flashy hackle that wraps very easily and comes in some barred and "freckled" versions. As far as upsizing for Pike, etc., Jbird, I actually have tied a bunch that way, and they are again very easy to tie on the tube. Just slide on some weight, tie in some fox or saddles, and the do the Kinky Muddler head. Since I'm using the "Soft Head" slide-on head, you don't even need to tie the materials back much, because the head pushes everything back when you slide it on, and it also gives you an angled taper to use as a guide in trimming. Attached are a few examples of Pike-sized tubes. Sorry, no video yet, but maybe one of these days ....
