Fly Tying a Foam Wing Caddis (Simple Flies Series)

The exact origin of this pattern isn’t really known, but it’s one of those that have probably been created by many tiers over the years. Fish this high floater wherever you find caddis flies– and it’s a great top fly on a dry/dropper rig.

Thread: Black or to match body
Body: Synthetic or natural dubbing
Wing: 2mm foam
Hackle: Brown or your choice
