- Nip the front of the Hemingway’s Caddis Pupa tube body.
- Run the hook through the front.
- Tie in the tip of the tube body.
- Come back with tread to one eye length, from the eye of the hook.
- Tie in the hackle and make 3-4 wraps.
- Tie it off.
- Pull the hackle back and wrap the tread in front of it to lock in place.
