Kingery's Black Ice

A very hard fly to find in many flyshops, but an extremely effective pattern that can be tied to imitate the many different spring, summer and fall hatches, just by changing the colors of the materials. Larry Kingery from Colorado , signature tier for Idylewilde Flies is the orginator of this pattern.
Black Ice 
Hook: TMC 2457, Sz: 14-20
Bead: Black Tungsten
Thread: Black 8/0
Tail: Black Hen Fibers
Abdomen: Black Halo Tinsel
Rib: Small Black Wire
(Cover Halo tinsel and wire with Clear Cure Goo)

Thought I would tie this up again and re-post as this has been a very popular post and pattern.

Start twisting them up.
