Simplicity: Bead Head Pattern

Oregon Rainbow Trout…caught/released

The simple bead headed patterns fished as nymphs, flymphs or emergers are simple to tie and to fish on streams and lakes. Whether you tie them or find them in the shop/store/on-line, give them a try.

I tied the below pattern with a slightly over sized bead for greater density in pocket water settings. I plan on dredging through likely holding water for Searun Cutts and ‘bows real soon. Pattern: Size 14 barbless hook, copper bead, peacock abdomen/thorax, Starling feather wing/hackle, black 8/0 thread.

This pattern would fit comfortably on a dime…to give you an idea of scale (for the non-fly fisher amongst you)
