A blog I follow mentioned A Pinhead fly. In the one picture I saw it looked like a body of thread, with a wire rib and a peacock herl thorax. They mentioned a size 22-24. I tried looking this fly up and the info. I came across was scarce. Does anyone here have any experience with this fly (pattern etc.).

I haven’t heard of it by that name but I have done really well with a Biot Bodied Fly in olive, with a peacock thorax and black bead head. Sounds close. I haven’t named it yet, so it probably isn’t t mine :lol:

Clearly a midge pattern and any number of them work great in the right time/location.

There are several patterns that go by the name Pinhead. It would help to know the context of the blog reference- but check out the Pinhead streamer pattern. Useful early to late spring pattern IMO.
