Is this a realistic color for a caddis worm? I found the material in my desk tonight and decided to see what I could whip up. It does resemble a similar pattern, the Brassie, but I have never seen an "Amber" caddis worm, only the green ones.

|The picture didn't come up, but if it's orangish the answer is yes. I'll leave the scientific break down for those w/ more knowledge in those areas than I.|

Yes, some caddisflies are quite close to that body color. If you were in the West, I believe the fly you tied would be a very effective imitation of the pupal stage of our October Caddis (Dicosmoecus).
Incidentally, if you just edit the img tags to be in all lower case, the photo should appear in your post.

I would use a 'caddis hook' and tie it with a slimmer body.
I like to use 'lava lace' for the body.
Something like this.........
* Edit.... the exact page doesn't come up. Go to 'fly archives', then its under '1st Qtr. 1999'. Tying instruction included!

I think I found the fly that you were talking about. It looks really good and I really want to tie some up. Thanks.
I actually think that the body of the one in the picture is made from lava lace. I wanted to use olive, but the only kind I have is too thick. I get like 3 wraps, then its time to tie off.
Yea, caddis hooks would help, but they are expensive though. At least here at the Cortland Line Store ($5 a pack). I don't have ANY cash on me because its the end of the semester. I only need to hold out for 2 more weeks!
Thank God fishing is free...

|There is a good jpg of an October Caddis at www.just2ty4.com. Gorgeous orange body. Northern California, Oregon, and Washington state in, your guessed it, "October". Slams into the water when depositing eggs. Jack_k|
