3 minute caddis

Not many dry fly patterns can be tied in three minutes, but heres one of them. The Elk & Hackle caddis. A quick adult skating caddis, that is an easy tie, but don’t be fooled, it’s also a very effective attractor.


Mottled wing caddis

A nifty para-weld caddis with a mottled turkey wing and a buggy hares ear abdomen and thorax. You can make the wing a little more robust by giving it a thin coat of UV resin.


Rubber grub grub

 

Rubber grub grub, three bugs in a tub. A super quick and easy grayling grub for fishing fast flowing pocket water with great effect.


Foam body Daddy long legs

 

The mother of all daddy’s. This larger than life foam bodied daddy long legs, is a great attractor that moves a whole load of water when pulled through the surface, and will float all day long. With a neat foam body technique.
