Pineapple Express Bead Head (w/hot spot)

In this video, I illustrate Aaron Jasper's Pineapple Express fly, a simple nymph that is highly effective in smaller sizes. The pattern is straightforward, but I also show a second fly with a variation in tail and hot spot color, plus detail how to finish the pattern with only the hot spot showing minus the thread (remember to apply head cement after using this technique!).

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
