OK, I’m torn on pattern.

 

Would you rather have number one or number two?

Yetavon Don't  be discouraged or overwhelmed, tie a nymph. Use pheasant for tail, wrap pheasant tail or biot for body. Use pheasant for legs,

 

This one:

tail-pheasant tail

body-pheasant tail

rib-copper wire

wing case - pheasant body

thorax-woodchuck 

legs -lower back pheasant

lead weight- piece of old dental lead foil

Winged caddis it is then.

Yetavon, the secret to the winged fly is I clean the feathers and coat with Sally Hanson nail polish, let dry and cut to shape.

 

Very effective during a hatch or just as a prospecting fly. It has no hackle. I use fly floatant when I fish. The dubbing is looped on and brushed to act as hackle. Caddis are usually very hairy looking.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. It's just like riding a bike someone said... But seems like the handlebars are bent and tires are flat.

 Sounds like me in old age!

Mine are really in the mail. I blessed them and wished them luck. I told them to stay away from Flytire’s “postal” flies and keep their feathers to themselves.

I am unfortunately not doing very well on getting back into this. Vise is currently somewhere in the woods behind the house... seems every step I take is backwards. 

I'm hoping to attempt again tomorrow...  Sorry folks
