Grey Caddis

Thread: Sheer 14/0 Brown
BodyFly-Rite Rust, Whiting Hackle
Wing: Hareline Para Post Wing

I’m in the middle of Watching “Ørretboms 5” from André Brun, and one of the flies covered on his flytying page is the Brun’s Caddis. I recently got some of the Para Post Wing and thought I would test it out for this pattern. The profile on the wing and the hackle (clipped on top/bottom) will make this a good pattern for later this summer when I go a bit north. This doesn’t have the tail as described, but frankly: I forgot all about it! This is a size #14 and I will make this from #12 down to #18 in slightly different color variations, but if truth be told: this is all about that profile, a real killer!
