Hook: Dry Fly Hook
Thread: 6/0 or 8/0
Tails/Underbody: Deer or Elk Body Hair
Body: Coarse Dry Fly Dubbing
Hackle: Brown Dry Fly Hackle, about 2X the hook gape long.
Head: Deer or Elk Body Hair
Secure the hook in your vise and attach your thread at a point about two hook-eye widths behind the eye.
Secure a small clump of deer body hair to the hook. Be sure that once this clump is secured in the following step, that the tips will stick out past the bend of the hook forming your tails.
Streamline the deer hairs rearward with your left hand. Secure it by bringing your thread rearward to a point directly above the barb.
Tie in a hackle feather at the point just above the barb.
Twist the dubbing onto your thread and dub the body forward. You want the body shape to resemble a cigar.
Palmer the hackle forward to the point where you initially started your thread onto the hook.
Trim any excess hackle, and then trim the deer body hair butts the same way that you would when forming the head on an Elk Hair Caddis.
Trim the hackle on the top and bottom of the hook so that you only have hackle sticking out from each side of the fly.
The finished fly.
