Head: 1/8 inch brass bead
Collar: Peacock Herl
1. Pinch barb down and slide bead on to eye. The bead adds weight and make the fly drop head first into the water. If using this fly without a bead head, fish with a sink tip line and a short leader.
2. Tie on the body material. If your using Medium Braid: tie in at bend of hook, wrap to head and tie off. If your using Fine Braid: tie in at head, wrap to bend and return to head, then tie off.
3. If desired, a collar can be tied in between the bead head and the body braid, using one strand of peacock herl. Tie off and add head cement. This collar is needed if a bead head is not used.
Emergent Pupa Version: Do not use a bead head. Add a marabou or hackle collar to simulate wings and legs. Add a small peacock herl collar.
