Beadhead WD-40 for Sale
The Beadhead WD-40 is a favorite fly of mine and works well all rivers and lakes. The wood duck (it’s what wd stands for in WD-40) tail is the key part to this fly that helps it out perform other midge and mayfly nymph and emerger patterns. The tail is meant to imitate a shuck of an emerging insect and that is something fish key in on when looking to eat an easy meal. When emerging insects leave the shuck, they are temporarily helpless. This pattern imitates that helpless little midge or mayfly perfectly.
This is a great fly for anyone looking to fish midge and mayfly nymphs on tailwaters or freestone rivers.
