I focused on that and mucked up the body (and the wings look very tall in those photos). I’m using old necks/capes acquired through estate sales so sizing isn’t exactly modern and I want to get a feel for what I have.
Honestly the body looks just fine to me but there's nothing wrong with perfecting your skill. As I was once told, " you tie to catch fish not fisherman". Lol

Got the idea from Flyfishfood’s Iris Caddis although with the spun squirrel up front it’s more like a variation on Walter Wiese’s Clacka.

thread- Danville 6/0 brown
shuck - Congo Hair amber
body - Ice Dub Hare’s Ear tan
wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - squirrel (loop dubbed)
