February Fly of the month
Hammer Creek Caddis Pupa
NOTE: At most general meetings we feature a "fly of the month" and everyone is encouraged to participate.
Tie and bring to the meeting two or more of the "fly of the month" and you will receive a raffle ticket for each fly. Those who have not tied a fly for the raffle can purchase tickets for a dollar apiece. The winning ticket gets half of all the flies submitted while the other half is retained by the chapter.
The fly of the month for February is a buggy looking caddis pupa from the folks at Hammer Creek. You will need the following materials:
- Hook: size 10 to 16 scud style
- 025 wire for weight
- Thread: olive brown or olive
- Back: mallard flank feather
- Ribbing: fine chartreuse wire
- Dubbing: olive ice dub
- Legs: any dark mottled soft hackle
- Head: gray ostrich herl
