They look awesome. How do the fish like them? Dead drift just subsurface?

The "Melted glue pupa" just under surface. The Gammarus have lead inside and go deep.
They are very good fishcatchers

That is a nice looking fly! I bet it would fish very well here in Wyoming. Nice work.

How do you do the glue part of that? I am looking at October caddis pupa, might help.
thanks,

Hi :)
First I make the fly.
Then I warm up the end off a glue rod with a lighter.

I place the gluerod near rhe hook eye and go slowly backwards.

Then I wet my fingers with my tongue and form the body.
