It is small olive wooly bugger with an orange bead and orange hackle.
Yes it is very similar to a wooly bugger except the body is slimmed down and the hackle is a dyed griz hackle. The hackle is more of a burnt orange . You can achieve this color by either dying the hackle using orange jello or by simply using an orange permanent marker and color the hackle before you tie it in.

Finally I no longer have to die my hackle. I found and bought a cape today that is the perfect color. The color is called crawdad orange :thumbup:

I just came back from hatch matchers and they have their beads in :thumbup: . As far as I know they are the only shop with these beads. These are the orange silver lined, they also have them in red, green and root beer.

for that size fly i would bet its an 8/0 bead and the reds ones with silver lining work just as good if you can get those locally :thumbup:

could also be a 10/0 bead which is smaller. ask them when you talk to the shop they should know which size your after seeing as its becoming the go to fly for that area.

Actually the red does not work as well. I would only go with the silver lined bead in a 8/0 . If you can not find any orange griz hackle then get natural and dye it with orange kool aid or even a orange permanent marker.

They probable tie it with red because they do not know where to get the orange bead. They can order red with silver lining from their supplier but they can not get the orange with silver lining. The only place to get them is at a bead shop and there is not that many around. Trust me I have tried both and the orange out performs the red 90% of the time.

FYI...

M and Y list silver lined orange beads on their mail order website....

The creator of the Pumpkinhead ties the same pattern in red (bead and hackle) and calls it the Cherry Bomb. I know nothing of its success relative to the Pumpkinhead.

Rootbeer Pumpkin Head tied by John Kent (apparent creator of the original and subsequent variations)



Substitute olive or green materials for the body. The orange hackle is claimed to be the key, I have no reason to doubt this nor its success...for others :(.
