How To Tie The Beadhead Jigged 20 Incher: Fly Tying Instructional Video

The Beadhead Jigged 20 Incher

The 20 Incher fly pattern has been around for some time. I don’t suspect it will be going anywhere anytime soon either. Our version varies slightly from the original as we are using the speckled chenille rather than the natural peacock herl. While it is hard to beat the look of natural peacock herl the speckled crystal chenille makes this tie a breeze and gives an excellent look as well. With added weight and a tungsten bead this is a great fly to utilize if you need to find the bottom of a deep hole and don’t want to overload your system with shot. If you have never fished it, you must!

Join us every week for Fly Tying Tuesday as we take on a new pattern!
