Bill's Beaded Lure
Featuring beads from a local haberdasher

To match body
Marabou (any colour you fancy)
Fritz to match or contrast with tail
Dressmakers coloured beads
This is dead easy and worthwhile pattern to tie. The first stage is simply to superglue the beads to the hook shank. I like to prepare a number of hooks in readiness. Rummage through your collection of Marabou and Fritz and find some colour combinations that take your fancy then get to work. In no time at all, you will have a colourful selection ready for the job. I hope they give you as much satisfaction and success as they have given me!
Allow to sink, then slow twitch retrieve.
This pattern was inspired by a packet of mixed coloured beads given to me by a friend who in turn picked them up from a dressmaking supplies shop that was closing down.
