Corn Feed Prince on the Weekly Fly.
 
A shameless self promotion, but the site has some great tiers and some good flies tied from start to finish. The Weekly Fly

Biggie: Thanks, that was interesting. Size 4 Prince Nymph, never thought of tying one that big, but I can see in muddy water it would attract fish.

After finding this fairly awesome fly on one of the later pages- Keyword(s): sasquatch - The Weekly Fly

I found my way to this link which looks like a really great, and tough fly- Fly - White Noise : This is Fly Daily

I use dubbing loops fairly often, but have never built them from wire. Seeing that fly makes me think I might have to get a wire-dubbing-brush-building rig. (ref to the Sasquatch/first link)

I like the Sasquatch! Very interesting technique using wire as a dubbing loop. I'm going to tie a few of those up.

Wire is most commonly used with tools like this- Tying tool review, Dubbing block with built in wheel for spinning dubbing brushes. Reviewed by Martin Joergensen - Global FlyFisher

I'd like to make one up myself, but finding something to replace the spinning wheel with the hook might be a challenge.

A 1/4" bead??? Not with my rods:eek: ! I try to keep beads down to 3/32" and
sometimes 1/8", and use more non-lead lead. Interesting tip on the
biot wings.
