Cased Caddis


Hook: Your favorite
Bead: Black
Caddis Larva: Yarn; singe one end
Legs: Partridge
Case: Dubbing brush, dubbing


Install the bead and tying thread


Singe one end of yarn and tie on as shown


Tie on a partridge feather and make a couple of wrap for the legs


Tie on a dubbing brush of whatever color to act as a filler. Note: this step is totally optional, its just the way I tie them


Wrap the dubbing brush forward and wrap the tying thread back to the bend of the hook


Dub the tying thread with a spiky dubbing such as hares ear and wrap forward creating the case


Finished Fly

I really like the looks of that pattern. Never had much luck fishing cased caddis patterns
