X-Caddis

 
tied by Old Hat
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northwest US,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Material List:
Hook: Gamakatsu R10 #14
Thread: Griffith's 14/0 dark brown
Shuck: Z-lon dun and amber mix
Rib: x-fine gold braid
Body: antron mix
Wing: Coastal deer hair
Tying Instructions: This is an easy caddis. Use colors to match your caddis flies. Tie in the shuck about as long as the hook shank. Tie in the rib. Dub the body. Original pattern used z-lon for the body as well as the shuck. Tie in the hair wing the same as for an elk hair caddis making the wing full and somewhat short. Hook shank to half shuck length.

Here is my method for tying in the wing. I make one wrap of thread around just the hair bundle. Then I lay it on the hook shank and make one semi-loose turn and then a tight turn of thread in the same spot. Pull up 1/3 of the hair butt ends and slip a loop deep between the fibers and tighten. Pull up the second 1/3 of the butt ends and do the same. Then pull up the remaining ends and tie off a nice head. Clip the butts to shape.
Presentation Tips: Dry fly presentations. Dead drift.
