     The Red and Copper is sort of a triple threat. It can be taken as a bloodworm, and red pupa or an attractor. Has worked well for me in sizes #14-#18. Its a simple tie.

gills- white Uni-Stretch

bead- red

abdomen- UTC 70 red

rib- copper holo tinsel or copper Flashabou

thorax- black thread

coating- Solarez Bone Dry
