Fly Tying: Underwing/Beard

So, forget my photo play experiment on the left. I was just experimenting with PhotoScape. The fly on the right is a sedge (Caddis) pupa pattern. This is one of those salvaged flies I found out in the shed in an old plastic tub. The abdomen is wrapped brown wool. Wool was a popular body material 30+ years ago. The wing is tied under the body in beard fashion like a real Caddis pupa and a bit too long. The thorax is hare’s ear/mask with a few prominent guard hairs. The fly was not weighted. The hook is a size 14. The wing under the body is tied in under the hook just back of the eye and is sometimes referred to as a beard.
