simple little green caddis emerger

Recommended Posts


Hook: Mustad Dry R50-94840 Size 20

Thread: Uni-thread 6/0 Camel

Body: Green, black, and brown Life Cycle Caddis Dubbing


Start by making an extremely thin body, just with thread


Flip over and tie in a clump of green dubbing on each side of the hook, leave long


Flip right side up, place black clump on each side of hook, 1.5 hook lengths long,


Place brown clump on top, leave long. 


Whip finish and pull any loose strands out. I then super glue or head cement the head, letting a very little amount soak into the fiber to make them more durable. 


cut at a downward angle to create taper of desired length, I like 2 hook lengths long or right around there.

Here is a side by side of an emerging little green caddis and the fly
