Trying my hand with a woven body Caddis pupa pattern. Tied on a #12 scud hook, amber V-rib, some Japanese hemp twine I found in the ID, and pheasant rump hackle left over after culling out stuff usable for Carey Specials. UV cement coating for the body.

Sorry about the photo quality. Sometimes tough with the phone’s camera.

Field test tomorrow. Kind of uncertain with the temperatures

Looking good! When I tied woven body flies, I found that horse hair (from tails or long manes) worked very well on top. I used rod-wrapping thread for the underside.
I picked up some moose hair. Long stuff. Tried it. Proved a bit fragile. Probably need to wet it first?
