This is my most successful fly for Sea Trout, tied no bigger then 50 mm on a Tiemco size 8 ,I've called it the BugBeel because it utilise the tack free UV cure resin Bug Bond ... 3.5 sec cure time with no residue
The fly is a cross between a surf candy and a flatwing


Hook: Tiemco 811s size 8
Underwing: White goat hair
Lateral flash : Pearl Flashabou
First flatwing: white cape hackle
Second flatwing : lavender saddle feather ( use what ever you have )
Third flatwing: golden olive cape hackle
Body wrap: Uv flash
Top wing : Med Olive and burnt olive blended buck tail topped off with three strands of herl
Eyes : 3mm gold with black pupil
Resin: Bug Bond

Materials




Hook in vice



Good thread base .. I use white UTC 140 as I want some bulk at the head



Tie in an underwing of goat hair



tie in a piece of flashabou along each side of the hook shank



tie in the first hackle flatwing style



tie in the second hackle on top of the first



tie in the third hackle on top of the second .. tail done



Wrap the body in flash of your choice .. I use A UV flash which is hard to see in the photo



Blend the med olive and burnt olive bt together



Tie in as a top wing



tie in three strands of herl



pull all the materials back



Apply the first coat of bug Bond and stick the eyes on



Apply the second coat of Bug Bond



Apply the final coat of Bug Bond



A few fish that have been caught ( and returned ) on this fly












Tight lines
