  • Put the base of thread down where it would hang at the barb of the hook.
  • Tie in the Grizzly Hackle.
  • Wrap the Olive Dubbing to the one eye length from the eye of the hook.
  • Bring the hackle forward making nice and even spaces and tie it in.
  • Trim the hackle from the top.
  • Take about four barbells of Mallard Flank and tie them in at the front of the hook.
  • Fold Hemingway’s Caddis Wings with dull side down and tie them in.
  • Take the Brown Hackle and tie it in at the head and wrap it few times. Tie it off.
  • Whip finish it and put the head cement.
