    Default Brassie variant



    Hook: TMC 2487BL #18
    Body: Copper wire (UTC small)
    Thorax: Peacock herl
    Bead: Copper
    Thread: Benecchi 12/0

    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!

    Regards

    Iain

    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.
