During my work on the caddis fly collection I started to free style a little with Snow Shoe hare material. I’ve not tied a lot with this material but when I finally managed to get my hands on a few feet in different material I really enjoyed it, this must be my favourite material for the moment!
Having tied a lot of CDC/deer sedge hogs I did something simillar with Snow shoe hare and hare’s dubbing, it turned out great. No it turned out more than great, I swear that this pattern has all the attributes to become my new absolute favorite caddis imitation!
Four small sections of Snow shoe hare, tied in on top of the shank and in between each section is natural hare’s dubbing (from the ear of the hare) in front of the last section of snow shoe hare is brown dyed hare’s dubbing. Once the fly is tied I brush out the underside by brushing it back/upwards, makes the hares dubbing blend nicely with the wing! And it is all tied on the Partridge TDH size 14!
How about it? Can this guy become your new Best Friend Forever? The BFF Caddis!!!
