Well, I'm back from vacation and back in the saddle tying some flies. Here are two photo's of my tie of Davie Mc Phail's PT Caddis Pupa a great fly for the creeks here in NY or anywhere else you have caddis flies.
|side view ~ notice the bug bond set on the wingcase, giving the appearance that the fly is ready to bust open.|
You can see Davie tie it here:
