I like to tie in the plastic over lay at the rear and pull it forward and tie off behind the eye of the hook. I have never adapted to ribbing front to rear for this pattern or like the Elk Hair Caddis, which you sometimes see ribbed front to rear. Aside from that, this is a dandy little pattern in all sizes (a good range is size 6 to size 18, but mostly sizes 10-16). Mix up your colors and try hot colors too. Re Czech Nymphing…I posted quite a bit about it last year….query the search box for more info.
