How to tie the October Caddis

I like to tie mine sparser, but that will work. Not sure why he burns the spun head at the end. I usually darken the front with a sharpie to match the natural bug, maybe that's what the burning achieves?

Burning tends to seal the ends of the hollow deer hair so it doesn't take up water as easily.
