Beadhead Coho Blue 10/21/2018

Hook: Size 4 - 8 long shank salmon hook

Bead: Brass or Gold to fit hook - 3/16, 5/32, or 1/8

Thread: 6/0 Black or Red Uni thread

Body: Silver/Gold Uni Mylar, or multi coloured tinsel

Wing: Blue, Turquoise, & White Polar Bear or Buck Tail

Over wing: Rainbow Krystal Flash over top

 

Instructions:

 

1. Slide the brass bead head to the eye of the hook. 

2. Apply thread just past the point of the hook. Tie in Mylar tinsel.

3. Wrap tinsel forward to the 3/4 point of the hook. ( Be sure to make tight wraps as you bring the Mylar forward.)

4. At the 3/4 point of the hook tie in some white, turquoise, then blue Polar fibres.

5. Tie in three or four strands of Rainbow Krystal flash over the polar and whip finish.

 

Comments:

We also tried a multicoloured craft store metallic tubing for the body with good results.

Try to keep the fly slender, using small amounts of each material in the wing.
