I borrowed and combined ideas from others for this beetle.

Body Loco Foam-

Attach black foam to hook (bling side up) and create a good thread base over tied down foam-

Move thread forward and tie in chartreuse foam (bling side down)-

Segment the foam to the rear of the hook. Tie off and cut thread-

Cut the excess foam-

Reattach thread behind the eye-

Pull black foam over the body, tie off and clip thread behind the eye-

Reattach thread one body segment back-

Tie in legs and wing-

Pull back foam over the head and tie in (one body segment back)-

Clip excess foam. Trim legs and wing to length.
I add a small amount of uv resin to the underside of the fly to increase durability.

Nice fly! Looks like something I would present with a lot of confidence. Which region would these be fished?
