Hi-Viz Beadhead

This pattern is tied with a orange tungsten bead and adhesive lead tape under the thorax...very heavy fly.  Should be a good searching pattern for Spring's high, off colored waters.  I saw Kevin Compton tie a similar pattern at the Fly Tying Symposium a few weeks back so I can't take any credit for this one.

Hook:  Scud size 14
Bead: Orange tungsten
Tail:  Pheasant tail
Abdomen:  Olive biot
Thorax:  Hares ear spun in dubbing loop
Wingcase:  Black thin skin
