#screamingbanshee #elkhair tied into the front, wrapped until the cut section of hair becomes the "tail" a layer of thread is built up just behind the "head" and another short section of elk hair is tied on top of your wraps like a caddis body, the "tail section is now brought to the front of the fly which has separated the two sides of your #caddis like wings, trim excess and halfhitch

Have you fished these yet? I tied some up for swinging trout on a micro spey rod. I did some with a little tail to keep them tracking in the water a little better. On the water, that mod looks better, but I'll have to wait and see what the trout think.

They proved better for smaller trout species like high mountain lake fishing, but I have caught a few lake trout in nevada with these... I'm interested that you added a tail, did you add the tail before the elk?
