I really like how you executed the legs and the wing case on this fly. I would rate this tie as spectacular! Really nice tie and thanks for showing us. This is on my short list of flies to tie.

Thank you sir, I am really humbled by your kind words. The white latex came from a balloon that I got in a pack at the dollar store. If you dab it with a marker the ink won’t sink in and it leaves those wonderful blotches. Then you cover it with UV, and it’s permanent.  The legs are simply tied in at the tip and palmered forward to the head.  Brush them down and pull the Latex over the top of the fibers.

Nice. I think that would be a great caddis imitation.

@cphubert - nice hat-trick of flies, masterful.
