Here is a video on how to tie the Royal Gorgeous Caddis. It's a simple fly to tie, the hardest part is making the dubbing. I use a mixture of 3 dubbings, but you can mix what you like and probably do just fine. Take a look.

This little caddis pattern works great anywhere there are caddis larva and pupa drifting around. It is based off of the Cimarron Special, a pattern from Greg Faught, one of my favorite patterns of all time. This is a very simple pattern to tie and the key is the buggy rubber leg dubbing.

Very nice. I have had some of that Hareline Hare'e Wiggle dub for a while. Now I can put it to some good use.ReplyDelete
people say they might tie some of these up. I WILL be tying some of these up :)ReplyDelete
I like my flies (mostly nymphs) simple. This fly looks simple and very buggy. I like it!ReplyDelete
Do you just leave the wire at the hook bend as it is or do you put a drop of super flue to prevent from unwrapping?
I do just leave the wire at the hook bend. I don't put anything on the last wrap. There is no need to do anything with it. How easy is that?!
