weight your body braid

a good way to add weight to a fly is to weight your body braid.
simply replace the cloth or steel core with lead or stainless steel fishing wire (depending on how much weight you desire), thus eliminating one step and extra bulk in your fly. this will give you a neater and more streamlined fly.
