Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

So I fished the Animas, and the guy working at the fly shop recommended a caddis pupae. So I grabbed a few of them in size 14, and went to fish. Sure enough I caught a few fish on it, and it was the only productive fly for the day. So I went home and started trying to tie it. I came up with something close, but its not perfect. However, I think its good enough, and I wanted to show you all the recipe. You can tailor it to your liking.

Here is the list of materials I used on the fly.
Hook: TMC 2487 in size 14
Bead: 3mm Tungsten Gold Bead
Thread: Veevus 14/0 in olive
Tail: Peacock Hurl
Flash: Pearl Crystal Flash
Ribbing: 6x Tippet
Body: Hairline Dubbing in Olive
Collar: Starburst Dubbing in Olive
Back: Baby Bug Back in Brown
Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV Curing Resin
