a 13 second caddis larva

fast, simple, strong and quite a good looker.

 

“You have to fish this larva deep, that’s why there is a lot of weight in it. It still got a slim body, so it sinks fast to the bottom. You will find Caddis in almost every river and it’s an important part of the fish’s menu.The coloration with the brown line on the abdomen is not a must. I just did it to show you what possibilities you have with ordinary marker pens. It’s tied on a # 10 hook, which sounds pretty big, but the body length is close to the original, just try to keep a slim, natural looking body. Ok, let’s start!”  and to do that (and even if it takes a bit longer than 13 seconds…),  find the materials list and complete step-by-step tutorial on Holger Lachmann‘s great The One Fly blog by clicking the image below. enjoy !
