Thorax: Peacock herl
Bead: Copper

An adaptation of the classic Brassie inspired by Rick Takahashi and Jerry Hubka's book Modern Midges. Can just about be tied down to a size 22 - hardest part is getting that damned bead on the hook!

Great fly and neatly tied. I often add a single turn of partridge or starling as a hackle. Adds that tiny bit of movement which can decide a fish.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon.
