Tying the Tape-Wing Caddis

Oliver Edwards gave me the idea for the wing. An early version of this fly appeared in his Flytyers Masterclass. I have tied the Edwards version of this fly with deer hair for legs and it works great. I have used this cdc legged version and it works too. Whatever floats your caddis. The technique for the wing is great. I am sure you will put it to good use.

I like to use partridge feathers because they are a little more translucent. The lighter feathers are easy to see on the water, like the bleached elk on the elk hair caddis. For slower water, I leave off the CDC hackle on the body.
