Micro Brassie

The Brassie is a well known fly, and has been a staple in many nymph fisherman's box. It can mimic an annelid, and even some other types of sub surface bugs. The problem when tying them so small, is that the wire will be tough to tie perfectly without that higher spine in the center. This method solves that issue and also makes tying this fly much quicker.

Here are the materials I used to tie this fly.
Hook: Lightning Strike SE7 in size 24
Wire: Small Ultra Wire in red
Thread: Veevus 16/0 in black
Dubbing: Super-Fine Dubbing in Black
Adhesive: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV curing resin

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.
