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
Tying Instructions: Free form:
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.
Presentation Tips: 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.
