Post The other SIX... (Brachycentridae/Amiocentrus)...

...for Fall...finished:

SNOOP CADDIS EMERGER…

HOOK: Daiichi 1130, TMC 2487, #16-#20

THREAD: Lagartun, 74 Denier, Olive

SHUCK: Amber Zelon

ABDOMEN: Working Thread

RIB: Opal mirage accent – Wapsi...not the spooled type

UNDER WING: Sparkle Emerger Yarn, Gray

OVER WING: Dun Snowshoe Hare – pulled upwards and clipped at an angle

HEAD: Fine and Dry, Callibaetis

I wanted something to sit in the surface film that floats well and that presents the abdomen and shuck below the surface. The sparkle emerger yarn is added to lend some bling under the Snowshoe Hare. There is another material that I will be testing out for under wings and to be chopped up and added to dubbing…it is on order from Bob Marriott’s and I am waiting for the call…the idea comes from some guy who wears scuba gear in rivers and studies the bugs up close…

CB CADDIS PUPAE…

HOOK: TMC 2488, #16-#18

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Black or Brown

ABDOMEN: Chironomid Braid, Peacock/Pearl

THORAX: UV Ice Dub, Brown

WING BUDS: Brown Partridge

FORE THORAX: Ostrich Herl, Brown

BEAD: Tungsten, Black 5/64 or 1/16

Somebody on FB called this “The TECHNO Fly”. I have been playing around with this material for awhile, figuring it might have applications for Caddis and May Flies. Well, Michael will try anything and I have no doubt that something rather large will affix its’ self to this fly with my son wading into and ploopin’ it in places that are not for the faint of heart…If it is successful, I will be tying some up in tan, for that other prolific Caddis…He will try it in HERE:

HOOK: Daiichi 1130, #16-#20

THREAD: Lagartun, 74 Denier, Olive – for under abdomen… then, Tiemco 16/0, Brown tied in at thorax

OVER ABDOMEN: Chartreuse Flexi Floss

RIB: Wapsi, Copper/Brown, Small

HACKLE: White Hen Saddle Fibers

The R.A.M. Caddis has always been one of my favorite patterns for the Eastern Sierras and beyond…this configuration was designed by Walt Wiese…

SNOSHU X2…

HOOK: Gamakatsu C15-BV, #18-#20

THREAD: Benecchi Euro Thread 12/0, Tan (and, yes they make it in this size in TAN)

SHUCK: Amber Zelon

RIB: Midge Flash, Pearl

ABDOMEN: Mix Olive Hare’s Ear and Olive Antron

WING: Dark Dun Snowshoe Hare

HEAD: Tan Emerger Dubbing, Nature’s Spirit

Craig Matthew’s X2 Caddis… done a little differently. I like to show trout variations on tested patterns…especially on some of the heavily pressured waters that me and the tribe wander to…

REALIST PUPAE- Brachycentrus / Variant …(McGee)…

HOOK: TMC 2488, #16-#18

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Brown

UNDER ABDOMEN: Olice Antron

ABDOMEN: Insect Green Goose Biot, Nature’s Spirit, tied notch down

RIB: Wapsi wire, Black, X-sm

THORAX: STS Tri-Lobal Dubbing – Hareline- Black

WINGLETS: Thin Skin, Mottled Bustard Natural

HACKLE: Grouse or Brown Partridge

I have been wanting to tie uo some of these puppies since I first saw this pattern in Allen McGee’s book: “Tying and Fishing Soft Hackled Nymphs”. This is a bit different from the recipe in that work. After consultation with my fly tying, GURU bud – Dean Endress- I decided to go with the materials in this pattern…in particular I switched from Swiss Straw to Thin Skin for the winglets. In my experience, swiss straw, for wings, gets mangled fairly quickly. This design, from Allen may also be used for Hydropsyche, Oecetis, Dicosmoecus, Chimarra, Agraylea and Lepidostoma – in the appropriate colors and sizes…His book has a wealth of helpful and interesting information…

C.P.E.D…(The NEVER FAIL – during a CADDIS HATCH)…

HOOK: Daiichi 1130, Mustad c49s, TMC 2487, #16-#20

THREAD: TIEMCO 16/0, Olive

UNDER ABDOMEN: Working Thread

OVER ABDOMEN: 3 strands, Peacock Krystal Flash, twisted

RIB: Green Metallic, Wapsi wire, X-sm

WING: Dun Elk

COLLAR: UV Ice Dub, Brown

BEAD: CYCLOPS, Brown/Olive…sized to hook (Wapsi)

I tie these flies in Amber, Copper, Rusty Brown, Olive, UV Tan, Blue, Red, Gray and Black. I use them during Caddis Hatches. When Michael comes up to me and asks: “What FLY shoud I use, Dad?”…I hand him one of these – while I think about it. They ALWAYS work…

Beautiful flies for sure, keep us posted on progress! I may be adding these to my growing docket of flies to tie and try, or try and tie... I haven't decided on the order of those yet, haha.
