Brown Bear Tackle Box Fly Patterns

Please read the patterns carefully before attempting to tie them.

This will help avoid frustration. I have tried to put the pattern down in order of construction and some of these can become complicated and time consuming.


  Name - Cockwells's Lead Nymph

  Hook - Std 8-10
  Thread - Olive
Tail Olive floss
Body Lead wire wrapped tight - Lead free is preffered
Wing Case Olive floss
Legs Olive floss
Thorax Olive floss
The olive floss at the front is tied as a collar, thicker on the bottom than the top. One could use olive dubbing as well; picking it out on the underside more than the top.
