The Beadhead WD40 fly is a popular nymph fly pattern used by fly anglers for trout fishing. The WD-40 fly was developed by the fly tyer Mark Engler in the early 1980s, and the addition of a beadhead was later added to create the Beadhead WD-40.
The Beadhead WD-40 fly is typically tied with a slender, tapered body made from a synthetic material such as polypropylene or Antron yarn, and a thin wire ribbing to add durability and a segmented appearance. A small bead is added to the head of the fly to provide some weight and help it sink in the water. The fly is usually tied in natural colors such as Black, Brown, Chartreuse, Grey, Olive, Red, Tan to imitate a variety of aquatic insects.
The Beadhead WD-40 is an effective fly for imitating midges, mayflies, and other small aquatic insects that trout feed on. It can be fished on its own or in combination with other nymph patterns in a multi-fly rig. When fishing the Beadhead WD-40, it is typically presented using a dead drift, meaning the fly is allowed to drift naturally with the current.
