Neat little bead head from Scott Sanchez that's worked pretty well wherever Yellow Sallies crawl, molt, drift, exist. Another quick and easy tie; doesn't hurt too bad to lose one if you fish it among the rocks.

hook - Dai Riki 060 #12-16 (tied this on the #12 for clarity's sake)
thread - Uni 8/0 camel
sides/tail - goose biot brown
body - spanflex/flexi-floss yellow
rib - copper wire (fine)
collar - hares ear dubbing
hackle - Indian hen back
head - 7/64 brass bead


Mash barb and slide bead on hook





start thread; tie down spanflex & wire





wrap back to hook bend and take thread back to the front





wrap spanflex to front, back and front to build up body, then trim





tie in biot at head on far side (let the tip extend a bit longer than the hook gap)





and near (trim butts)





hold the biots against the side of the body and start wrapping the rib forward





to the head






add a little dubbing






add a little dubbing






wrap the collar






prep a hackle and tie in (for sparser look, strip fibers off one side of hackle)






wrap the hackle





tie off, add a dash of Sally and you're done; top view






bottom view





Regards,
Scott
