BugBeel Step by Step

This is my most successful fly for Sea Trout, tied no bigger then 50 mm on a Tiemco size 8 ,I've called it the BugBeel because it utilise the tack free UV cure resin Bug Bond ... 3.5 sec cure time with no residue
The fly is a cross between a surf candy and a flatwing

Hook: Tiemco 811s size 8
Underwing: White goat hair
Lateral flash : Pearl Flashabou
First flatwing: white cape hackle
Second flatwing : lavender saddle feather ( use what ever you have )
Third flatwing: golden olive cape hackle
Body wrap: Uv flash
Top wing : Med Olive and burnt olive blended buck tail topped off with three strands of herl
Eyes : 3mm gold with black pupil
Resin: Bug Bond


Hook in vice

Good thread base .. I use white UTC 140 as I want some bulk at the head

Tie in an underwing of goat hair

tie in a piece of flashabou along each side of the hook shank

tie in the first hackle flatwing style
