Stump Lake Damsel


Stump Lake Damsel

Hook: your favorite
Thread: olive
Eyes: see below
Tail: marabou
Body: swannundaze or d-rib etc
Wing case: olive magic foil, scud back etc
Thorax: SLF damsel olive dubbing


 Thread 2 fringe beads onto a short length of wire and twist until tight. I added a drop uv resin to help spread them apart. Tie them onto the hook and make some figure eight wraps between the beads.



Example of fringe beads. Note the offset hole.
 


If you're lazy and don't want to twist up any eyes just use peanut beads.


Thanks for looking & happy tying.
