I was passing by, noticed the thread.

Darwin once showed me the tie, but my memory is hazy. Fortunately I have a write-up.

Dry fly hook.
Thread the shank.
Deer hair 3+ times shank length.
Even hair tips.
Tie on butts an eye-length behind eye, wrap closely back to rear of shank.
Bend tips forward, wrap in segment-making spiral to behind eye.
Wrap thread rearward a bit, bend hair tips back, tie down into bullet head, with 'topwing' flowing back beyond bend.
Tie off and cement.

Give it a try!

Volks,

I saw this thread and since (for some strange reason) I have a lot of deer hair, I thought I would give it a try. Seemed Like it would give me a chance to practice positioning the hair and tying it down for the CDC and Elk.

Got the instructions from Charlie's Fly Box.

Here's the first one: Got the hair a little forward of the correct position and might be a little sparse.

Here's a quick Cartop Caddis:

Click to see original Image in a new window

(I should have thumbnailed the hairs to make the wing cover all 180 degrees of the top, but I snapped the pic before I thought of it.)
(And next time I'll ease up a bit on the rearmost wing wrap, try to tame the wing angle.)
(And it was a short hook that first came to hand.)
(In other words, I rushed the little project!)
(If I keep typing, I'll just find more things to pick about; so I'll hit the 'submit' button now.)


It doesn't get much simpler- Tie on, bind it back, spiral it forward, flair it back at a 'neck'.

In my magazine clippings I came across another write-up of the Cartop, written by someone else but credited to Darwin Atkin. It agrees with what I posted, as did the accompanying picture.
