That is not the best pic I really like them. The dark brown in a #16 I feel is perfect for the Big D caddis hatch I saw late last summer.

Good point my friend. Its either carry a floatant or spend your day false casting your arse off drying that fly out.


Tip o' the day. If you tie this pattern using thread wax on your tying thread, the water will not penetrate the thread. It will give the fly a longer time on the water before the deer, or elk hair become saturated. :)
