The Rena-fly works well in a caddis hatch.

Hot melted glue on post - pressed down with wetted finger.

2. Dubb the body.

3. Place the yarn under the hook shank.

4. Secure the post and mount the hackle as a parachute.

5. Cut a small bit of the melting glue.

6. Place the small bit of glue on a needle. Melt it with a lighter.
