Bead-Cased Caddis (DW)

tied by dwiltshire
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Material List:
Hook: Fulling Mill 31550 All Purpose Size 10
Thread: Spider Web
Body: Glass and copper beads
Thorax: Green seal’s fur
Grub: White closed-cell foam (coloured black and varnished at end)
Legs: Partridge

Tying Instructions: The glass and copper beads should be given a layer of thin varnish - this stops the body from rotating and undwinding the dubbed thorax.

The foam grub body helps impart some life to the fly as is trundells over the river bed
Presentation Tips: upstream dead-drift or Czech nymphing- usually after a flood
