Peeking Caddis Pattern
These are great dead drifted in creeks and rivers

Hook- Partridge K62st size 8
Rear body- Rub-A-Dub hares ear. (it has very thin pieces of rubber, makes it look awesome) ( also use anything that makes it look like the case they make to live in.
Front body- Neon Green Antron yarn
over body- clear scudback, you can also use olive if you want to change colors.
Rib- ultra small olive wire (it sinks into the scudback when wrapped on and gives it a great, chunky segmented look like the caddis have)
head-Peackock hearl
Bead-5/32 black tungsten bead (makes it sink like a rock just how you want it.

Re: Peeking Caddis Pattern
That's a killer looking caddis! Thanks for posting this. I have tied something similar but on the traditional caddis/grub 2457 hook but this one looks much much better. The hook makes the difference. The rub a dub makes for a killer casing. Very nicely done. :punk:
