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
