I went to get one and I'm out. Let me tie one and snap some photos. Ok here they are. I usually leave more chenelle sticking out the front of the hook eye and also the back too. I also tie them this way even if I don't use the lead but I like that I can get these down "there".

AhhH!!! thank you! i wasn't getting the fact that you wrapped the lead around the chenille. I guess i was just so used to wrapping lead being the first thing i do on a fly - interesting indeed. I'm gonna try it right now - thanks

I ment to say Vermille .

Vermille
Light brown thread
size .020 lead wire
Size 12-16 curved nymph hook

1. Tie in the vermille

2. Wrap 2/3 or 3/4 of hook in lead

3. Cover lead with the light brown thread entirely

4. Whip finish it and put it in your vest

Jake, whatever you end up calling it thats a good looking fly, and a very innovative way of tying it. I'm not sure i would have thought of wrapping the lead over the chennile, nice thought, well executed.

Vermille. I meant to say vermille and not chenelle.

SORRY ABOUT ANY CONFUSION ( VERMILLE )

I tie the worms in different sizes and colors. This one is my favorita way. I wrap light brown hare's ear dubbing around the lead with dark brown thread.

you could buy weighted nymph hooks or
add tungston bodies

i used to do this by mixing tungston powder with epoxy.

Bought some of those tungsten bodies at last years Somerset show. I tied up some scuds using them and was amazed at how heavy those things are - even the little ones. Tough to make a slender body though. Neat product, but not exactly cheap.
