Used Holger Lachmann's sea trout pattern as the foundation; made a few modifications hoping to come up with an October Caddis. First time trying folded bronze mallard as a wing; needs some work.

hook - Dai Riki 899 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 coffee
butt - craft fur orange
rear hackle - CdC cinnamon
rib - x-small wire copper
body - Antron dubbing ginger
body hackle - brown
wing - bronze mallard
front hackle - CdC cinnamon
collar - partridge dyed rust (Kool Aid orange/drop of black food coloring)

mash barb; start thread, wrap to bend



tie in a clump of craft fur; trim even with bend





create thread loop; capture CdC in clip, trim butts, insert into loop, spin







sweep fibers back while wrapping; tie off/trim



tie in rib



dub thread/dub body to return wire





tie in hackle, wrap to bend





capture hackle tip with wire, rib forward; helicopter end, cover with thread





give everything a good scrubbing





(stole this from Davie McPhail) prep mallard feather; strip some off





first fold



again



and again



measure (tips a bit past the butt), tie in with a pinch wrap, secure with additional wraps, trim butts/cover with thread









do the loop thing again











tip tie partridge



wrap the partridge, tie off/trim, whip finish, SHHAN







Regards,
Scott
