Galway's Grannom

tied by cussfly16
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Southeast US,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Material List:
Hook: 5xl streamer hook size 12-16
Thread: 70 denier Dk Brown Ultra
Bead: Black 1/8th for size 12
Bead catcher: 1/8th inch black Thin Skin
Legs: Few black Hen fibers mixed with some brown Partridge.
Body: I honestly don't know what kind this is, just that greenish blue color is needed and it needs to be tight.
Underbody: Dark olive rabbit dubbing, with four pins tied in on each corner to give square conical case shape.. then clipped to appropriate length.
Case: One Strand of Olive, Brown, and Tan floss twisted into a rope and wound over
Tying Instructions: The only thing I think people might not understand is the way I hold the bead in place and start the fly. I put the bead on backwards and then tie in the Thin Skin and whip finish. Push the bead up onto the Skin and dub a small ball of olive rabbit behind it and then pull the Thin Skin over top and wrap it off. Bead is now locked in place and fly is ready to be tied..
