I've been having a ton of success this season fishing these nymphs tied on jig hooks with tungsten beads.

Thread: Rusty Brown 8/0 (70d)

Good luck.

Darren that is an Interesting out of the box way to do a hot spot.

It actually seems to reflect around the bead.

I like this.  Have you ever tied it with other colors of PT fiber and/or peacock?
