Tying Instructions: Apply the bead to the hook.
Start a thread base behind the bead working your way to the bend of the hook.
Take 1 piece of foam (with the tag end facing behind the fly) approximately 1" long and tie in a concave fashion so that it is evenly distibuted around the hook.
Slide the bead over the tie in area, and sneak the thread under the bead to the front and re secure the thread leaving ample room for a thread head.
flip the foam over the bead keeping it concave so that it distributes evenly around the bead.
Tie down and whip finish.
Presentation Tips: When wet the bead will bleed through the Mcfly Foam serving as the blood dot.
