Jindra Lacko shows an 8-step deep fishing caddis pattern. By using a jig style hook, you can be sure to loose less flies as the hook fishes point up. Size and colors can be adjusted for local hatches.
Hook- Jig style
Bead- 4.6 mm Tungsten
Lead- flat lead
Tip- UNI Neon thread
Butt dubbing- hot green
Body dubbing- hare
For a fly of this weight and size a jig hook is better choice, as it will snag a bit less. Just keep in mind you are going to lose your fly, and have some spare.
I am using some seriously heavy metal – 4.6 mm Tungsten bead and a layer of flat lead.
For the tip I am using 4 strands of UNI Neon thread, color Fluo Green. It will imitate the peeping caddis larva and – more importantly – act as an attractor.
To make the tip more pronounced I add a small ball of hot green dubbing; it will make the tip more pronounced.
A smallish partridge feather to imitate legs of the caddis larva and add movement to the fly.
Wind the hackle, attach a thin gold tinsel.
Dub body of scruffy dubbing from back of a hare.
Counter rib the body and whip finish. Brush the fly vigorously with a velcro strip.
Take a step back and enjoy your work
