Elk Hair Caddis (dubbed, ribbed and scraggly)

Caddis (Low Water Profile)

The hardest part of this pattern is dubbing a minimal amount of your favorite sparkle, synthetic dubbing and then winding a thin copper ribbing up through the dubbing. Then brush out the dubbing to a scraggly style to animate the surface. Remember an ultra thin copper wire, tinsel or thread type ribbing.  This is a size 14 dry fly hook and, of course, and Elk Hair wing. A slightly different version from the usual EHC pattern. It will float lower and offer more movement on and in the surface film. Of course, the dubbing can be a different color, say tan, cinnamon or darker. Found this pattern to tie at The Caddis Fly Shop; Eugene, Oregon. A similar pattern, I have shown before, has CDC palmered around shank and under wing. This pattern would be more durable.

I found this tutorial on tying a low water Caddis (Sedge). Again, the photography is extra informative on how things should look. It is enjoyable when a tier takes the time to give a little extra on the photo. It, to me, makes a big difference on visualizing how the fly should really look.
