I and a few others started some threads on the eve of most of the major hatches last year, and they ended up being great threads.

They are still there to read, but what the hell. I am excited for grannoms.

Colors suck. Sorry.

Most people forget to tie an obvious head for their caddis softhackle patterns (leadwing). I like it. It doesn't look like a peacock body though. Peacock might be better.

It is peacock. The colors are just washed out in the photo. I can't seem to locate my good camera.

Thanks for the input.

Since they all look black, here are the materials:

All CDC is black
All deer hair is dark dun
Bodies are either cdc, peacock, or peacock ice dub.

They're better than my ties, so thumbs up. Extra thumbs up for your ability to use Ice dub. I can't ever get it to wrap around the thread.

I hear a lot of people say that but I think it dubs like a champ. I must be magical in ice dub cause I suck otherwise (in tying and life).

I have this problem from time to time. It's worse when my hands are really dry.

Try some lotion for the skin.

Very nice, jay. With the nymph that you tie representing a larvae, you are going fishing with a full american grannom life cycle.

It's been a while since I've heard a good Silence of the Lambs quote. Thumbs up again.

I'm desperately trying to hold off on buying hackle, so ice dub might be the trick for now.

Rub your finger tips over the wax.

I've had little luck in caddis hatches past, looking forward to giving some new ideas a try. Break out the cdc i guess.

I find that the cdc and elk outfishes everything, throughout the duration of the hatch - not just the emergence. I don't haggle with the fish over it!

I hit Spring near the Wastewater Plant in Bellefonte, and MR. Grannom and the rest of his family were present. After today I would say, "IT"S ON!" <- At least at Spring Creek
