overmywaders - That is basically a Cooper Bug, an old pattern fished as both a dry and a wet fly.

Benj52 - Works well as a dry.

weiliwen - I've caught a ton of cutthroat with this, mostly in orange and yellow.

Tied-Down Caddis

 
tied by Old Hat
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northwest US,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Material List:
Hook: 2x long dry
Thread: Color choice
Tail: Deer hair tips
Hackle: badger Hen
Body: simi-seal
Shellback: deer hair butts

Tying Instructions:
Tie in the tail.
Move the thread to the front and tie in the hackle.
Dub your thread and wrap to the tail base.
Wrap your hackle back and tie off with the thread.
Work the thread forward through the hackle to the eye counter wrapping the hackle.
Pull the hair butts down and tie off.

I also add a thin cement to the tail tie in, and the initial hair butt tie in before I form the fly's final head shape and finish.
