I am playing around with PINK
for an emerging Hydropsyche...this is Walter Weise's (Park's Fly Shop) Pink Clacka Caddis:
Parks' Fly Shop New Flies for 2013
Craig Matthews developed a Glossosoma that uses small, twisted black and red Ultra wire to give it an orange-ish effect, covered by a White Zelon bubble...and it really works great...
Ralph Cutter discusses the Glossosoma here:
California School of Flyfishing, Nevada City and Truckee, CA > Entomology > Glossosoma Caddisflies
The design of the DNA DIP is based on the BRF Guide Seredipity which imitates the Brachycentrus (Grannom) or Mother's Day hatch .
For that one, I use Chartreuse DNA Holo Fusion, ribbed with black Ice Thread...It SLAYS...
