It’s a fun fly to tie and it is a fairly fast fly to tie. The thing with this pattern is the split deer hair wings that creates an exiting profile.
Tapering is the key to the fly. Be careful to create a distinct taper and a rather heavy thorax. Brush the dubbing to create an even more bug like appearance to the fly.
If you vary the length of the wing, the pattern can also be fished as an egg laying caddis pattern. Short wing for emergers, longer wings for egg laying caddis.
