Hi.

 

This is an adult caddis type that I've tied for years, not that it makes the fly a classic.

 

See what you think. Size #16 DR 280 - I like this hook.

 

Filling boxes? Hop you're all well.

Hi Dale, While I like the caddisflies very much, I just love those mayflies. All the best, Marc

Thanks Marc!!

 

Yeah, the old standard hen tip mayfly - dubbed or quill body - is just a beauty.

 

The hackle is barred ginger, that's a variant and has dun on the back of the feathers!!!!!!!!! Tom sent it to me with a pile of pelts after the flood. Man, do I love these types of capes: odd, quirky and beautiful - like me, other than I'm ugly. Oh well; 2 of 3 isn't bad, right?

 

Hope you're well. Tying? Thawing out up there?

 

Love to yours.
