    Default Simple Foam Caddis SBS



    Was going to call it the PetroChemicalByproduct Caddis but PCB is probably not a good name choice. Size up one and this would work as a passable Spruce Moth.

    hook - Dai Riki 305 #14
    thread - Danville 6/0 tan
    body/head - 1mm foam tan
    wing - Congo Hair tan
    thorax - dubbing tan (optional - helps the hackle lay better)
    hackle - barred cream


    Part 1

    mash barb, start thread; cover shank and return to eye




    tie in foam strip (1/2 gap width) forward over eye




    brush shank with Super Glue, fold back/create head; tie down, wrap to bend






    wrap body, tie off/trim




    tie in a hank of CH; crosswrap






    tie in hackle, sweeping wing back

    This one would kill up in the Whites.

    Alberto,

    Thanks. Not my invention. I borrowed parts from a few different patterns.
