Was watching Charlie Craven’s X Caddis video and liked the full head he put on it; just took it a little bit further and added rib/synth wing.


hook - WFC Model 3 #12
thread - Veevus 8/0 tan
shuck - Zelon gold
rib - Mirage Flash opal
body - ostrich herl bleached 
wing - Congo Hair shiner tan
collar/head - deer hair

Regards,
Scott

Someone asked for something called a soft hackle dry.  Didn’t come out too bad...  looks good floating in the water.  Was tough doing both soft hackle and dry fly hackle on the same fly.  

 

It looks similar to a grunter pattern

Here is my Royal Wulff. It got chewed up when my vise locked up and I couldn't get it out but I'll fish it and see how long it lasts. I wasn't feeling the white calf tail so I tied in yellow calf tail instead. Looks much much better then when I tried last time.

You are talented.  I would tie the hackle fuller on a Wulff.

I was thinking the same thing. I took the lazy way and used a hackle I had laying around next time I will use more effort. Thanks for the kind words!

Yeah almost identical, besides the hot spot at the tail.  Man Davey is so good.  Thanks for showing me that.  I can see where I made mistakes.  Lol!!!    Here is the pic I was given to go off of.

The body rib on this was tough.  4 different materials all spaced out together to give the look of a gradation ribbing.  I didn’t have quills in Orange...  lol!  I made my own
