Downsized and simplified version of a cool fly I saw on the Speypages site; still needs work but it has possibilities. Ryan Houston has a nice video of a fully dressed one.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Veevus 8/0 tan
tail- pheasant rump
rib - small oval tinsel gold
body - Ice Dub hare’s ear grey
wing - pheasant body feather
hackle - pheasant rump

Regards,
Scott

Nice tye Scott......

I've never seen or heard of the pattern before, what is it supposed to represent some sort of Dragon fly or Mayfly nymph ??

Thanks, Rob. I don’t think it’s supposed to imitate anything in particular; just an attractor pattern. From what I’ve found out, the original Beaadle flies were developed in the 1930’s as an alternative to full-dressed salmon flies. The ones on the Speypages site I linked to used a V-trimmed feather instead of matching quill strips for the wing, simplifying things even further.

Regards,
Scott
