I bought a caddis wing cutter made by River Road Customs. I thought I had some material to cut wings from but it didn't work well. Anyone have suggestions on materials that work? RRC has some on thier web site but I thought I'd check around before I bought some.

Mallard primary feathers. Try tying a Henryville special they work great, one of the best patterns I've found especially on brookie streams, but they work for browns very well too. The other pattern I use is the deer hair wing.

I know a lot of guys will use "tyvek" and color it with a marker, should work good with your cutter.

I love this Web Wing stuff. I also use turkey and other quills with a coat of flexi-ment (sp) on them. The key is to cut them on the rubber surface your cutter should have come with.

Tabasco, one other thing you can use for wings is to take a piece of swiss straw flatten it out then take some head cement and coat the one side, fold it in half with the glue being in the center of the fold, let dry then punch out.

I remember seeing Web Wing in a shop one time and thinking it would work great for caddis wings. Just ordered some to give it a try thanks Tom.

Lou, Plumbob, I'll see you guys at the meeting next week.
