A classic AuSable pattern, the "Hatching Caddis" is a parachute hex pattern that has been around for many years.

Step By Step:
Start thread. Select a few pheasant tail fibers and tie them in as shown.
Stack a clump of deer hair and align, secure, and segment the body the same way as the Hex Spinner pattern. Trim excess hair and wrap over the butt ends with the thread.
Stack a clump of white deer belly hair and tie in with the tips facing forward as shown. Trim excess hair at the back.
Prepare and tie in two brown hackle feathers for the parachute hackle.
Make a few wraps with the hackle and secure. Whip finish and cement head.

Additional Tips/Photos:
  • The wing on this fly is very big. It helps to make it more visible in the night time.
