Welcome to Copper Fly - Begginners guide to tying


Glass bead Nymph

The Glo Egg Flishing Fly This is a nice little nymph that I have had good luck with. This wet fly is easy to tie, and I carry a few of these in my fly box in a couple different colors. Olive works wonders in Alberta.

Ingredients for this fly:
  • Mustad 3399 size 8-12
  • Antron dubbing
  • Glass beads
  • 6/0 Uni-thread
Starting the fly.

Crimp the barb of the hook and place 3-5 baeds on the hook depending on the size of the beads and the hook.

wrap the fly with some dubbing

Tie on your thread at the bend of the hook, and add a small amount of dubbing to the thread. Ramp up the dubbing to the last bead. You want to leave this loose against the bead so that you can add more dubbing between beads.

Dubbing the fly

Add a half hitch and move to the next space between the beads. Dub and wind.

Finish the fly.

Continue until all the spaces between beads have been filled. Tie off the thread and cement.
