Hook: TMC 2488 sz. 14-20
Thread: UNI Thread 8/0 - Tan or Brown
Body: TCO East Coast Dubbing - Yellow/Tan Caddis
Underwing: Midge Flash - Pearl
Wing: CDC - Natural, in a dubbing loop
Step 1: Make a thread base, about a quarter of the way down the hook bend.
Step 2: Dub the body, remember caddis are a messy bug, so don't be afraid to make it very buggy.
Step 3: Leaving about two hook eye spaces material free, tie in around 5 strands of midge flash.
Step 4: Trim and stack one cdc feather (for sz. 16). Make a thread loop, then lay cdc fibers in the loop. Spin the cdc and then pick out with a brush.
Step 5: Wrap the cdc loop around the hook, packing the fibers very close.
Step 6: Whip finish and cut thread off.
Step 7: Now trim the bottom flat, this will add the two tone look to the fly. With more cdc fibers, this will also help grab the powder and in turn keep it floating longer and higher.
