This version of the the Orange Parson Hairwing was tied by Ken Broadhead using beads for the body. You will find many more of his exceptional beaded flies, as well as several other styles at The Flies of Ken Broadhead.   

Ken's Notes: Another great old salmon fly. Leave or omit whatever you like.

Ken's Tips for Beads: You probably need to de-barb the hook to slip the beads on. Glass beads aren't uniform so check them first. Wrap a smooth thread base then tie off. Don't make a large tail assembly. You wont be able to the get first bead on. Glue the beads to the thread base and each other with cement (Krazy Glue, Zap a Gap, etc.)
