Fly Tying: Motely Crew Peeking Caddis

Part of the rescue flies program, I tied these long ago with brown rug yarn and a semblance of a peeking pupa (or is it larva) protruding from the casing (rug yarn). The hook shank could have been longer to form a slightly longer casing. Not sure it matters much. The pattern is not weighted…probably should be with a couple turns of weight beneath the casing. The flies are on a size 12 hook.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
