Biography & Thoughts
One of which is the "standard" downwing tent shaped wings used on many wet fly imitations of duns. When one knows that "Duns" was once the name for "Caddis flies", then the reason for the wing shape becomes clear. At some point, people began copying the old patterns, and using flies which were designed to copy duns, but simply neglected to mention, or simply did not know, that these flies were designed to imitate caddis flies, and NOT mayfly duns as used in modern nomenclature. Hence my name (Caddisman)
Forum Signature
They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.
