Lite Brite Perdigon Fly Tying Tutorial

The Lite Brite Perdigon shines like the children's toy many of us grew up playing with. Trout tend to like tiny and shiny things so it happens to meet their fancy a lot as well. In this video, I share how to tie the pink version of the pattern which is especially good during the colder months of the year. Other favorite color variations include peacock, black, uv blue, pearl, and rootbeer.
