The other Cased Caddis

As an alternative case material to steely34's "Cased Caddis"............

One day when I was pretty young my dad had me fishing lower Black Moshannon, we kept a few fish to cook creekside for lunch. As I gutted the trout, I took a look inside the stomach to see what the trout were feeding on and found a fair amount of miniature pebble cases and at the time I was clueless to what they were. As the years went by and I learned about all the aquatic insects I alwayed remembered that day on Black Moshannon and seeing all those cases in the bellys of those trout. I racked my brain for a few years actually on how to mimic this case in a fly pattern............until one day my wife called me on the way home from work to have me pick up a can of coarse ground pepper.....then it hit me......anyway here it is.....

MATERIALS: NOT PICTURED BRUSH ON SUPER GLUE


REMEMBER ALWAYS STAY HYDRATED AT THE BENCH


1. THREAD HOOK




DUB THE BACK HALF OF THE HOOK IN A CIGAR SHAPE AND TRIM EXCESS DUBBING


TIE OFF AND POUR A PILE OF PEPPER OUT, APPLY GLUE TO ALL SIDES OF DUBBING AND ROLL AROUND IN PEPPER UNTIL ALL SIDES ARE COVER, YOU MAY HAVE TO DO A BIT OF SCULPTING, ONCE HAPPY WITH CASE, APPLY A COAT OF QUICK DRYING SUPER GLUE




BEND HOOK (OPTIONAL) AND APPLY DUBBING (COLOR TO MATCH CADDIS DESIRED) AND BLACK DUBBING FOR HEAD........TIE OFF




COMPLETED FLY

May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.

    Sculpin - very cool! Great imagination!
