Pattern Description
The Biot Epoxy Stone is yet another pattern from tying guru Mike Mercer. Mike has a string of great patterns out there available through Umpqua Feather Merchants and adds more killing rendetions every year. The Biot Epoxy Stone has become a best-seller for good reason. A nicely segmented biot body coupled with an epoxy coated wingcase and a bead make for a pattern that is both realistic and durable. There are a few tricks in tying this pattern that aren't readily apparent, so take a look through the tutorial before you start in on tying one. Nothing beyond basic tying skills are required, but above average attention to detail is also a prerequisite for this pattern. Feel up to the challenge? Get on it!
