Default "Green caddis" nymph pattern ;)

Hi, I'll be fishing a trout stream that supposedly has a lot of caddis hatches.

One of the flies I've heard that works pretty well is the well-known "green weenie". Question - for tying this sucker in a #16-18, is the vernille even small enough to wrap properly? Is there anything smaller? Should I just use green thread or some kind of dubbing at this size?

Thanks --

Go big or go home with the weenie... no reason to tie it so small... 12-10 is really as small as I'd tie it... caddis range in all sizes from around 8 all the way down to 20

The green caddis (bright green body and grey/brown wings) in my region are quite large. A size 10 hook is fine.

Techniclally not a nymph or a larva but a pupa.

There's 2 types of flies called the "green weenie"
The little one with the micro chenille imitates the inch worm and is an early summer hatch
The other imitates the caddis larvae commonly called the green rock worm
Likely a Rhyacophila

They're pretty common and the ones that I tie look something like this
Size 10 or 12
