Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Drum,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Imitation: Worms,
Material List:
red microchenille
3mm copper bead
6/0 UNI thread, red
ultrawire, medium, red
Tiemco 2457 scud hook, size 8
Tying Instructions: I started with the basic SJW pattern. I opted for the microchenille and threaded a piece through a bead and onto a size 8 Tiemco 2457 scud hook. Here's where it gets interesting. I tied on a red wire body, the length of the hook shank. I tied in the chenille at the rear of the hook, whip finished, and tied off. I put head cement on the thread wraps and coated the entire wire body. This fly should now be as tough as an armored car.
