BDE Mayfly Fly Tying Video Instructions

The BDE is a great mayfly dry fly pattern developed by Ben Furimsky.  The BDE can be tied in several color variations to imitate specific mayfly species.  The BDE is a EASY extended body mayfly pattern.  Many extended body patterns are frustrating and difficult to tie…but this one is not!!  The superglue adds the magic and binds the tailing material together….making a perfect mayfly body!
