Fly Tying 27 Feb 2019

Peter assumed the task of leading.

The Fly was the egg laying Elk Hair Caddis. It is a simple fly to tie and can be tied from size 20 to size 10. In past years it has been responsible for many hook ups for Peter (he cannot suggest that it was primarily the egg laying tie that attracted the fish or whether an ordinary would have done the job).

The following materials are required for the tying of the Egg Laying EHC:

Hook size: size 16 or your preferred size hook Hanak 100BL

Thread : Uni thread 8/0 Brown

Dubbing: Ice Dub UV peacock eye (or hends spectre dubbing 46)

Dubbing : superfine dubbing Tan

Hackle: Brown Saddle Hackle to suit hook size

Wing: Bleached Elk Hair
