    Step 1: Put bead on hook and start thread.



    Step 2: Tie in some larva lace at the bend of the hook.



    Step 3: Catch in glo-bright and form body then tie off.



    Step 4: Wrap larva lace up body and tie it off.



    Step 5: Catch in 3 peacock herls and twist into rope.



    Step 6: Wind the herl on then tie it off and whip finish and thats the fly done.

    for some reason fish seem to like peacock hurl
    its used in a lot of tying
    i use it on a lot of my buzzers
    so to answer your question its a very good fly tying material that attracts fish
    good luck

    oh nice fly by the way
    I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,9 bean rows will I have there and a hive for the honey bee.

    nice sbs, peacock herl or not!

    the only comment i have is to use the smallest diameter of larva lace for the body and to tie it in behind the bead. pull the lace tight to stretch it as you wind your thread back to the bend of the hook. then pull on the lace to stretch it as you wind the lace to the eye of the hook. tying in behind the bead will eliminate any bumps in the body that shows in the fly you tied.

    the fish wont care, but tyers are obsessive compulsive creatures.
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Good bloodworm Greenock and thanks for the Sbs.
    Good advice from flytire. I do the same when creating some of my buzzers. The piece of advice I will add is that you need good quality Larva Lace or Body so you can stretch it thin. One good one I have found is Semtex from Flybox.
    If you varnish the head or body test on the Larva lace first as sometimes you get a reaction and it melts with your buzzer coming apart like a coiled spring.
