Weighted Damselfly

Hook: Curved-shank nymph hook, sizes 10 to 6.
Thread: Brown or dark olive 6/0 (140 denier).
Eyes: Micro lead eyes.
Tail: Pheasant tail fibers.
Abdomen: Small Liquid Lace or Stretch Tubing, color to match the natural insect.
Thorax: Antron dubbing, color to match the natural insect.
Wing case: A strip of turkey or pheasant tail feather, or your favorite wing-case material.
Legs: Partridge hackle fibers.
Note: Many tiers use monofilament dumbbell eyes on this type of pattern, but I prefer a
tiny lead dumbbell. The weight helps sink the fly, and tying it to the tippet with a loop
knot gives it a jigging action.
