Witch Doctor fly tying pattern

Witch Doctor streamer. Fly is attributed to Bill Finnerty who I don’t know much about. The fly was used on both lake Winnisquam and Winnipesaukee. There are stories about the Winnisquam anglers always wanting blue in their fly patterns similar to Jim Warner’s Winnisquam Smelt. This is trolled deep in the summer and fall and can be used on top in the spring as well.
