Default Re: Cased Caddis

I couldn't find anything in particular on a fly involving sand, but I did find another pattern for an effective cased Caddis Pattern- Charlie's FlyBox - Colorado's Best FlyShop and online Fly Tying Tutorials

I would think that for the one you described, you'd want to use some wraps of thin lead wire (don't want it TOO heavy), cover those wire wraps with thread until you've a slimmer version of the tabered shape you're after, do a light coating of epoxy where you want the sand to be, and sprinkle sand onto the fly while rotating it in the vise to make sure its coated evenly.

I've never made one that way, but that's how I'd tackle the challenge.
