The Miracle Caddis

With the succesful conclusion of the 3rd Annual event, I thought I'd post the fly that it is central to the event; the Miracle Caddis.

Hook: Daiichi 1182, Crystal Finish, size to suit
Thread: Gudebrod 6/0, color to suit
Abdomen:Gudebrod EZ Dub (for speed) or Scintilla (for scruffiness), color to match natural
Thorax: Scintilla #83, Ripe Olive
Tail: 4-6 crinkled Antron fibers
Wing: fine, natural deerhair

For speed, during the Tie-A-Thon, I use the EZ Dub for the body; that's great stuff and very durable!

A tying sequence can be obtained in the Winter 2004 "Flyfishing and Tying Journal", page 96.

(Flytyer: From a previous thread, I'd have smoked you in the whip finishing contest, even after 23 hours and 501 flies, but it would have been fun! Recorded time: 76 seconds from an empty vise to a completed fly)
