Word is they're about a week to 10 days out; time to get cracking. Back half is the same as the updated Carnage Hopper; front end's Stimi-ish. The 3/32" heat shrink tubing and 2mm foam made for bodies a bit too chunky for what I wanted in a caddis, then I remembered it's "HEAT SHRINK" tubing, so I slid it on a thinner needle, applied some heat and shrunk it (probably half the diameter). For the foam, until I get some 1mm stuff, I just pulled/stretched a strip of the 2mm 'till it was the thickness I was looking for.



hook - Dai Riki 280 #10
thread - UTC 140 tan
body - 2mm foam
wing - elk hair
legs - rubber medium burnt orange
thorax - dubbing orange
hackle - dark ginger

Pull/stretch (gently) a strip of 2mm foam to get the desired thickness (side-by-side with 2mm)
