Flyfishing, flytying and hooks

Caddis variations: yellow, green & red I find a pattern that I like I normally do two things: first I tie it in different sizes (normally from #12 to #22) to practice and/or find the limitations on the pattern for the different sizes (and when you know how to tie a parachute in #22 it gets quite easy to do one in #12!). Then I do different color variations to see what could work. Yesterday I did a vinyl rib caddis and today I tied up the same pattern on the same hook but with different colors for body and a white deer hair for wing.

Yellow body: Hare – Tron Pale Yellow body: Hare’s Ice Dub Rusty Orange Body: Hare’s Ear Plus Dark Olive finally just one with white deer hair and a body of Hare’s Ice Dub Rusty Orange
