bead butts tied by fish Fly Type: Nymphs
Glass beads with metallic finish. Got them at the craft section at Walmart, had to fight a 10 year old girl for the last bag.
Seal fur dubbing, orange and brown
Orange ostrich herl
put the dubbing in front. Slide the beads up snug, pick out the dubbing between the crack(s). Put on a hackle if you want. One here has ringneck pheasant back feather tips tied around for a collar. Start the thread on the back, brace the beads against the dubbing. Put on some herl if you want, the orange was handy when I made one of the flies so I just wrapped some on to cover the big thread brace.
Never fished them before. I reckon that they are sort of heavy a substitute peacock herl and might be good if bounced around on the bottom in a current. I will give them a try this spring.
