    Also one of my flies, a hot wire caddis. as good as i think this fly looks i did not catch my first fish on it until i had already decided to tie them up for this swap.

    body-rust colored wire
    shellback-flat black floss pulled over every 4th or 5th wrap of wire
    wing-2 white goose biots tied in like a prince nymph then a few strands of pearl krystal flash on top.
    dubbing-chocolate antron wool
    head-silver bead

    Good looking fly, Mike. What size hook did you tie all that material on?

    I don't remember what size this particular one for the swap was but it would either be a 16 or a 14. i'm thinking 14 though

    Mike, gorgeous pattern. I particurly like how you tied in the overback material . . . simple, yet effective, and just 'looks' right.
