Beaded bandits

A couple of Tungsten beadheads in the fashion of Uhorčík, the fabled bandit hero from Slovakia.


The ones on the left are #10 Hanák 260 BL and 3.5 mm bead, the ones on middle and right are #12 and 3.0 mm bead.

  3. interesting ties!
    What did you use for the thorax? Natural rabbit dubbing?

  4. Thanks, the thorax is hare fur from the back of the animal. It has lots of guard hairs, so it gives the thorax great structure and a scruffy look.

  7. Thanks Scotty!
    I appreciate your comments, though it shames me a bit that the relatively speaking young technique of Czech (or Polish) nymphing is so popular in the UK but the venerable tradition of Clyde style flies is almost unknown over here :)

    Cheers!
