Furry Foam Caddis
tied by navigator36
Fly Type: General Freshwater,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Central Canada,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Mustad 94840 dry fly or other preferred size 8-12
Kevlar or good spinning thread
Furry foam sheet in green, tan, or brown, etc...
Hard as nails or other thicker head cement
Deer hair in tan, grey, brown or natural.
Tying Instructions: Wrap the thread to the hook bend.
Tie on a strip of furry foam for the body.
Wrap the thread almost up to the hook eye.
Before you wrap the furry foam strip to the front to create the body, a little trick is involved here.
Before the foam is wrapped to the front, add a thick cement along the thread wrap to the front.
Then wrap the furry foam to the front around the freshly cemented thread and hook.
Tie off the furry foam.
This allows you to use no ribbing to reinforce the body of furry foam.
It is actually cemented to the hook shank and cannot unravel. Very easy.
Then take a clump of even deer hair and tie it in as the wing leaving a small head at the front.
Trim the head of deer hair down at the front, tie off, cement and you are done.
Presentation Tips: This caddis is a great high floater and does not sink
as easily as a dubbed or thread body caddis of equal appearance.
If you haven't tried this furry foam yet, I can tell you
it works great for caddis and hopper imitations.
