Nice Lou!

Here is one I played with tonight.
Ahrex SA 280 hook, 1” Firehole Sticks Shank, Spawnfish Fly 60° degree shank.
I palmered polar chenille at the end of the first two sections to try and conceal the segments.
This one still needs some works but should wiggle pretty good.

That's cool Brian, looks like it could also be dredge along the bottom like a worm with the hook up more or less.

Fly on the left is a favorite of Chuck Keegan’s. A Red Beadhead from one of Missoula’s four fly shops.

I have a box of flies that I’ve removed from fish. Don’t remember where the mangled version came from, but it’s proof that the little pattern works.

Hook: Size 18 ringeye
Bead: 5/64”gold
Tail: Brown zelon stub
Body: Red thread
Rib: Finest silver wire
Thorax: Peacock
Wing: Hungarian partridge, tied on top

Pinched barb Mustad C49S #16 with a 5/64 black tungsten bead. Wrapped with Togens Chirony Skin in Blue Steel, overwrappwd with Dun coloured Fly Tyer's Dungeon Crystal Web and ribbed with UTC X-small red wire. Tied with Uni 8/0 in black. Not really grooving on the beads with the little eye-like bulges but I want to use them up. 20200126_120755.jpg
