dress hook to bend with touching turns then back to half shank

add small drop of super glue 

tie in foam with thread wraps going forward, trim waste

tie in a small clump of deer hair winding thread through the buts to the hook eye

trim butts close

tie in a badger hackle shinny side towards you

wrap hackle forward 3-4 turns, tie off

double whip finish, trim waste piece

  1. Looks exactly like a Puterbaugh Caddis? I fish it quite often for Yellowfish and trout, can also try olive and yellow foam!

  2. Yes, 4 sure it's a Neversink in the South of the USA and a Puterbaugh most everywhere else.... at least that's been my experience...
