Recipe for Steelhead Beetle:
Materials
Hook: Daiichi 1720 Sizes 10, 8, 6, & 4
Thread: Brown or Olive
Underbody: Weed trimmer cord extend past eye of hook; I used 20# mono
Tag: Burnt orange dubbing; use different colors also
Body: Medium brown dubbing
Wing: Stiff elk or moose hair; also use deer hair
Back: Black foam
Head: Trimmed wing hair and foam

1. Start thread on hook. Tie in the mono extension to extend beyond hookeye.
2. Take thread to hook bend and tie in foam body
3. Dub in your color choice for tag end
4. Dub in body to about a hook eye length behind eye
5. Tie in hair wing so front extends out to end of mono extension. Tips should extend back to end of hook
6. Separate hair wing and bring foam up and over towards hook eye
7. Secure foam with thread wraps behind hook eye - whip finish
8. Trim foam to desired head shape

This fly works great when using a Riffle Hitch: Riffle Hitch | How to tie a Riffle Hitch animated and illustrated

Easy Migraine Hopper

Sadly these are named for a good reason. I tied a very simple fly because it's all I could do since the migraine has been so bad. It will catch fish for sure.

- Daiichi 1280 #8 (I want to tie 10 and 12 also)
- orange foam
- yellow flat thread
- yellow doll hair

you will know how to tie it when you see it.

I apologize for sending mine late, but they're on the way. I tied mine so long ago and I've been getting the house ready for a little one to arrive it slipped my mind. They should be there Monday but might be a day or two late.
