Euro Hooker

This fly came about when I was trying to make a 'Euro' version of Charlie Craven's Two Bit Hooker. I'm not saying it's as good as the original, but it sure does catch a lot of fish. I generally keep this black but do use all sorts of different color accent beads.
Recipe
Hook: Dohiku, Size 14
Bead #1: 3.3mm Slotted Tungsten, Matte Black
Bead #2: 2.5mm Countersunk Tungsten, Fire Orange
Thread: UTC 70, Black
Tail: Micro-Barred Fibbers, White/Barred Black
Rib: Small Ultra Wire, Silver

A note on Hook and Bead sizes:
For a #14 hook, use a 3.3mm slotted bead with 2.5mm countersunk bead and size small ultra wire.
For a #16 hook, use a 2.8mm slotted bead with 2.0mm countersunk bead and size extra small ultra wire.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
