Default Re: some Uk patterns of mine

the caenis pattern tying is :-

HOOK SIZE 16 kamasan b 175
tail is 3 fibres of white hen
body is white floss thread
thorax is peacock herl
and hackle is white cock hackle.

tie in tail and build body up half way and tie in peacock herl doubled.tie off white thread replace with 8/0 black thread and tie in white cock and then bring herl over splitting the hackle and whip finish.
It took me 3 weeks of watching the natural to get the pattern right and is a perfect reproduction of the natural.
glad you like them
the beads by the way are rainbow bead.
