    Default Popeye Beetle

    A very effective terrestrial fly pattern tied using a folded foam cylinder coated with glitter on the ends. Tied in different colours it can be used to imitate any terrestrial insect with multi-faceted eyes such as beetles, bluebottles, dung flies etc. Tied on a jig hook it can be fished on its own or as a duo with a nymph on a length of tippet tied to the jig hook eye.
    Thanks for watching.

    Excellent Nick. Nice easy way to tie a beetle, like the body shape with the folded foam cylinder.
