Diving Caddis

Hook: Standard wet fly # 12-20

Thread: Olive

Hackle: Brown Partridge

Eggs Sack: Olive hare’s ear dubbing

Ribbing: Flat gold tinsel

Body: Natural hare’s ear dubbed Leisenring style

Tying Instructions: Strip off one side of the hackle and tie it to the shank, appropiately by it's tip or stem, so it lies out over the eye. Wrap the thread down the shank to the bend and dub on the egg sack. Tie on the fine gold tinsel, then tie on the dubbing brush, trim excess and wrap the body, followed by the ribbing. Trim each as it's wrapped and tied off. Wrap the hackle and tie off. Trim excess. With the non-tying hands thumb and forefinger, sweep the hackles back holding them in this position. Slightly overwrap the hackles with the tying thread to keep them in position. Create the head, whip finish and coat with cement
Presentation Tips: This fly is very effective on the Leisenring lift during the entire season as many caddis swim below the surface to deposit eggs. It is also effective fished on the swing.
