    Default Hot Spot Hetero Genius Nymph SBS

    Kinda looks like a bead head Royal Wulff/Pheasant Tail; designed by Dave Hise. Original pattern calls for golden pheasant tail fibers for the body; the one I have was crap (didn't even know I brought one) so I subbed hen pheasant tail fibers and they seemed to work okay. Don't know if it works any better than a PT, but I like to break things up a bit if I've been tying a bunch of the same pattern.

    hook - Dai Riki 135 #16
    thread - MFC 6/0 hot orange
    tail/abdomen - hen pheasant tail
    rib - wire x-small copper
    hot spot - tying thread
    thorax - peacock
    wing case/legs - hen pheasant tail
    bead - brass 3/32

    Part 1

    mash barb, slide bead on hook, attach thread and tie in wire rib

    wrap back down the hook bend

    tie in pheasant tail fibers

    wrap pheasant forward over back 1/3 of hook shank; build up front 2/3 with tying thread

    wrap wire rib forward, helicopter end and tie off

    pull off 6-8 pt fibers and tie in with points over the front of the hook (about 1/3 shank length)

    tie in peacock herl and wrap back to 2/3 mark

    wrap peacock forward and tie off
