    I want to throw some dirty stuff at the steel, so this is my first pure dirt fly. My question is, Are the beads in the way? Do they block the hook gap or do you think they will move out of the way when the unicorn bites?

    Thanks

    Try this. Put a line through the eye, hold the line with one hand and lightly pinch the line between your first two fingers. Now pull the fly through. Did you get hooked?

    Why, yes I did. My balls are not in the way.

    Thanks Jeff!

    No brother Black, that is a whole set of dirty. Each a collection of three strung beads and some interwoven white maribou on a pointy bent wire. I only kept one for myself and it was lost to the depths of the river. I will have a few more in hand for use on the move in a few weeks.
