Tying instructions

Easiest fly in the world to tie? Just slide on the beads in order. Run the thread on and build up to stop beads sliding off – then cast of thread with a hand whip finish.

Fishing Instructions

Works anywhere – particularly good on clear water small still waters e.g. Meon Springs or Chalk Springs etc. Fish it dead drift or an unbelievably slow retrieve.

Interesting facts

A very robust fly – surprisingly takes are usually very gentle and hooking is usually in the top lip so don’t play them too hard.
