Adult Caddisfly

Hook: Mustad 94840 or an equivalent dry-fly hook, sizes 18 to 8.
Thread: Size 8/0 (70 denier) in a color to match the body dubbing.
Body: Your favorite brand of dry-fly dubbing in a color to match the natural insect.
Body hackle: Dry-fly hackle. The barbules on this hackle should be about equal to the width of the hook gap.
Wing: River Foam, River Wing, Medallion Sheeting, Tyvek Wing Sheet, or your favorite brand of wing material. The only requirement is that the material must be soft enough so that it doesn’t dull the cutter.
Antennae: Stripped hackle quills.
Collar: Dry fly hackle, slightly larger than the body hackle.
