Build up body with preferably olive thread, gently strip all of the fibers off of one strand of peacock hearl and tie in the back, bring peacock hearl forward with touching wraps and tie off.
Its a simple fly to tie, Lee

Hook: TMC 2488H #18 - 22 hook
Bead: Brown (sized to match)
Thread: Tan 8/0 Uni
Body: Stripped Peacock Eye Quill

A deadly fly, especially on the SoHo.

Here is a Pic....The bead in this pic is one size larger than I would typically use. But is was all I had at the time, and putting tiny beads on a #22 hook is not the easiest task.

Thanks I have been looking all over the internet for it, and was not able to find it. This helps a lot.
