Chilli Pepper Fly Pattern

Chilli Pepper Fly Pattern

Hook - streamer or steelhead/salmon hook
Size – #6-#8 streamer hook
Thread – brown
Weight – lead wraps (.030) behind bead
Tail – Tail consists of orange marabou split in half to simulate pincers and a couple of strands of flashabou (Krystal Flash).
Body – consists of copper tinsel chenille with brown hackle palmered in tip first. This will provide shorter hackle near the back and the longer stuff near the bead.
Head – 5/32 tungston bead

Comment – Effective on many species of fish during many seasons. A favorite of many on this website. Thanks to Ralf Maky for the instructions and picture.
