Here is a picture of an "Ice Nymph" I took using a new camera. Really just testing the camera. The nymph uses ice dubbing.

I was going to call it Steve's Caddis but I'm not sure just changing the hook size warrants a new name!

Good point. I was so focused on solving the wing problem on these I forgot the tail. I think I solved the wing problem. Previously on flies where I used this wing material were not very durable. But they worked great on ants and Tricos before the wing was damaged. Which was only a few casts. The wings were put on with traditional figure 8 thread wraps. On these I bonded the wings on prior to wrapping the figure 8s. I can tell these are going to be very durable.

Can't wait for Trico time on the LL.

Sandflea; You couldn't tie that fly if you wanted too and remember who taught you everything you know, almost!

How is the body proportion on this? I didn't notice the thin spot between the body and thorax until I took the pictures.

I think you nailed when you saw the gap.

If you want a thinner body, don't be affraid to stretch the latex till it's really tight (it takes a lot for a ballon to break, or one of those gloves, or a STD/pregnancy preventer).

As far a proportions, if you filled in that gap with dubbing it would be dead on.

BTW it looks like a cased caddis crawling around.

Steve You need more taper in the body,stretch the latex at the beginning and use less tension with each wrap. Stop the body even with the hook point,Tie in case and dub back onto body if you do this you will not have a gap problem. If you ar still having problems we can go ovar it when our tying group meets. Or email me.

Yep, this one was tied with much thicker latex than the others. It's hard to maintain the right tension on latex that thick on this type of hook. A few more ties and I'll get the kinks out.
