In this video, Richard Armstrong ties his signature fly pattern, the Bead Belly Bait-Fish. Featuring a slick new sliding-keel-bead design element, the Bead Belly Bait-Fish dives, flashes, and rattles with all kinds of dying-minnow goodness. This fly gets EATS! In this example Armstrong ties the fly in baby-bass colors: a hatch matcher for all you warmwater folks out there. However, the fly can be tied to match any small prey fish. From herring to finger mullet, anchovy to threadfin shad the possibilities are endless.

Step 1: Slide bead on with the large bead hole facing the hook eye. Place hook in vise with hook point up.
Step 2: Start thread and tie in the “weight-eyes” just behind the 90-degree bend of the hook, leaving the bead behind to free slide on the hook shank. A strong, white thread can be used for this task for added durability over the mono thread.
Step 3: Tie in a small amount of Poly Bear as a tail at the hook bend. Trim Poly Bear for taper and translucency. It is important to make a very tidy but slightly oversized thread bump to prevent the bead for getting stuck at the tail. Whip finish and trim off thread.
Step 4: Coat “weight-eyes” and tail with a small amount of clear epoxy, careful to leave the bead freely sliding. Let dry.
Step 5: Start thread at the front of the hook and tie in Poly Bear underwing—I prefer to spin a double-length section of the underwing material around the hook shank, tie the underwing forward, then pull it back to secure it in place. Trim for taper and translucency.
Step 6: Tie in lateral line material over the top of the underwing (as applicable).
Step 7: Tie in over-wing—Stacking, not spinning on top of lateral line/under wing. Trim for taper and translucency.
Step 8: Tie in collar (as applicable)—spin around hook and fold back over under-wing and over-wing. Whip finish and trim off thread.
Step 9: Apply 3D molded eyes to either side of the wings above the “weight-eyes”. Press 3D eyes together to help wide the shoulder profile of the fly.
Step 10: Coat the head of the fly with epoxy to secure the thread wraps and 3D molded eyes. It is important to secure the 3D molded eyes, but care must be taken that the epoxy does not get too far back on the wing as to impede the hook gap. About halfway back on the 3D eyes is the maximum distance up the wing the epoxy can be without impeding.
Step 11: Once the epoxy has dried, brush out entire fly with a toothbrush and make any last trimmings for taper and translucency. Take fly from vise and place on a piece of paper. Mark fly with permanent markers per pattern recipes (as applicable.)
