The Brassie is a well known fly, and has been a staple in many nymph fisherman's box.  It can mimic an annelid, and even some other types of sub surface bugs.  The problem when tying them so small, is that the wire will be tough to tie perfectly without that higher spine in the center.  This method solves that issue and also makes tying this fly much quicker.  


 
Here are the materials I used to tie this fly.
Hook:  Lightning Strike SE7 in size 24 
Wire:  Small Ultra Wire in red
Thread:  Veevus 16/0 in black
Dubbing:  Super-Fine Dubbing in Black 
Adhesive:  Solarez "Bone Dry" UV curing resin

Thanks, buddy!  I'll tie one of those tonight.  

 

I'm headed back up there tomorrow and will most likely drop in and say "Hello" some day during the week. 

 

See you soon!
