The Brassie is a simple weighted Chironomid pattern and I have had lots of success on this pattern. The only demonstrated in this video is slightly different than the version I tie, but just as nice on the finish. My version I just wrap the wire onto the hook shank without using and thread to tie it down and the head is the same.
Here is something to stock into your stillwater box. A few points that make this pattern stand out are the barb-less hook used, the ultra fine wire and the overall durability and effectiveness of this fly. You can change out the body colors with olives an browns and change the cheeks to various shades of oranges and reds.
