    What color is the bead? Is the hackle brown or black?

    Nice looking fly. I always associate the Wooly Worm with the red tail. I'm sure that one will get eaten just as much.

    I caught a lot of fish on Tunkwa using Wooly Worms back in the mid 90's when I was just learning fly fishing.

    Gene the bead is a Multihued Rainbow Brass Bead (Hareline Dubbin). The hackle is black, to get a high contrast with the gold orange dubbing.

    Nick, of course, the original is red. This one is just a variation, keeping the "style". The tail in this case is orange.

    Ahhh... I've seen the beads but never on a pattern. Interesting. I know I sure like the multihued eyes for bass flies. I may have to give them a try.

    That's one of the aspects of tying that I love the most...being able to tweak proven patterns to suit my own fishing needs, or in many cases, simple curiosity.
