Jasper was my black Labrador who supplied the black fur for this nymph.
Size 10 standard wet fly heavy wire
None but use a heavy hook and heavy wire rib
Black fur (dog, seal or rabbit)
Heavy copper wire
Yellow fur ( seal or rabbit)
Both body and thorax fur need to be applied using a fur spinner and then vigorously raked out with a Velcro pad.
This fly regularly filled my limit at Weirwood early season. It is a good representation of a caddis larva so should be fished slowly on a long leader
Very simple to tie but good at hooking the bottom. If you don’t occasionally hook the bottom then you are not fishing deep enough. My fishing log shows many successful days in the 1990s at Weirwood.
