Fly Tying: Mono Loops & 2 Flies

While perusing the excellent tying of John Newbury, I noticed his Hazel’s Cased Caddis and the atypical addition of a mono loop at the bend of the hook. Looking further at this tying technique for multiple fly set ups, I came up with a couple other uses for the mono loop (Hoppicator Loops at Winona Fly Factory) and the addition of a stiff mono loop at the rear of the fly to keep the trailing rabbit fur from fouling around the hook bend. These three options are interesting presentation options for the fly fisher.

Make sure to watch the video linked at Winona of how to rig the two loop setup. I watched this last year and for some reason didn’t grasp the method. Today, when I watched it again, it made sense. Newbury’s pattern is an option in lieu of tying the second fly to the bend. Three options I have seen and never used. They all have merit and expand your presentation arsenal?
