Products used in this recipe:
Lead the hook with 2 layers of lead tape and leave a little room in the front of the hook unleaded for the peeping grub
Tie in the yarn and create the peeping grub by wrapping forward over the unleaded part of the hook shank and then doubling back to the leaded part.
Now spiral down to the end of the shank and tie in your Oliver Edwards Caddis Legs. Then wrap up to the peeping grub and tie off very securely. After that trim the deer hair in the shape of a caddis case.
For the legs take your Golden Pheasant center tail and strip off some fibers but strip them off at a right angle to the quill to receive little hooked legs. Tie in your first set on the underside of the hook.
