Secure eyes on the bottom of the jig hook (one eye length from the bend of the jig hook) using alternating wraps (3 in one direction and then 3 in the other direction) and repeat until the eyes are solid on the hook.  Then cut a significant amount of Flashabou and tie it in for the tail and double it back to secure.  Leave the flash long and with a straight cut at the back to ensure the most movement possible in the fly. Its a good idea to whip finish and epoxy the eyes and the shank of the hook at this point for durability.  Wait for epoxy to dry and move on to step 2

Cut your first color of SF Blend fibre.  For most flies this will be your lightest fiber since it will be the belly. Taper the fiber before tying in by adjusting the fibers in your fingers until you have uneven tail.  Tie the fiber in the center in front of your eyes and then pull both sections back over the eyes and secure with a 4-6 wraps of thread

For the Gills we’ll be using EP Anadromous Brush in Red.  Cut a small V from the brush and roll the fibers in your fingers so the fibers are together in two sections.  You now have a right and a left side.  Secure this V down on the bottom of the hook with loose wraps first so you have the red fibers split on either side of the fly but oriented in a downward.  Its a good idea to whip finish and epoxy the eyes and the shank of the hook at this point for durability.  Wait for epoxy to dry and move on to step 4

Select a section of your next color of SF Blend Fibers.  This should be about half the amount of the belly section of a fly.  Taper the ends and tie the near side even with the body on the top of the hook.

Take the second color fibers going forward of the eye and fold them back on the far side of the hook.  They should be even with the near side fiber you just tied in. To get this use your scissors to taper the fiber.

Select your last color of SF Fiber and tie it in on top of the section you just tied in for the second color.  If you tie it in the middle of the fiber you should be able to double it back over and then secure everything with 2 coats of thread wraps. Epoxy and wait to dry and the fly is finished.

Caddis Flies

Caddis Flies

Caddisflies are relatively large aquatic insects that provide hungry trout with an excellent source of nutritional protein. There are literally thousands of species of caddis across the globe so it's often helpful to generalize caddis by their color and size; an angler would have to have a thousand fly boxes to match every local species of caddis. Here are the Caddis fly patterns that fill our fly boxes.
