Fly Tying: Bead Head Flymph

I imagine my steelheading brethren cringe at the site or mention of a trout fly. And, I am equally certain those that chase trout (the non-ocean going variety) would take exception to me categorizing my concoction as a flymph. I first heard of flymph’s while reading the works of Dave Hughes and Rick Hafele in the early 90’s. I understood it to be a basic nymph pattern (not a wet) with an additional use of a wound hackle at the front (soft hackles). Here, I have added a root beer brown bead. The original flymphs were without a bead for sure. The tail and abdomen are dyed peacock herl and the thorax is a concoction of dubbings (dark brown). The hackle is from a PP Starling patch. No wingcase. The hook is an old Mustad 3906.
