I came across this pattern and it looks like a winner. Simple and quick tie. I didn't know if anyone had tried this pattern. I'm going to give it a shot.

I Have used this on the WB and had good results. Highly visible and floats well.

Love that pattern. Works really well whenever Caddis are out and about.

I have been doing a lot of flies with CDC bodies. I like the petijean meathod where you twist the cdc before wrapping the body to get segments. I have mostly used it with cdc wings, but when wrapped the body tends to get wet fast, so using some duck oil helps.
