In the pack the lengths of spun legs can seem quite stiff and a tyer can imagine that it will be tricky enough to put on small flies or small amounts on larger flies. It is quite the opposite and I found it to be really easy to manipulate and tie in small places.
This sedge pupa on the right is a small wet fly pattern that is very attractive with the caddis legs tied in just behind the bead and brushed back. I can imagine that this fly swinging through a run and the deer hair creating quite and attraction will produce quite a few takes. The legs comes in several colours to suit your needs and the body of this fly is a white wool coloured in to match the legs.
This black nymph was another attractive fly that will get a swim in the spring. its tied on a Jig hook with a lead under-body and black spectra dubbing body ribbed with Hends Mylar ribbing. The tail is natural Partridge with a yellow Glo-Brite tag. These Caddis legs by Jan Siman are well worth playing around with and you will discover there ability to enhance some of your favorite flies.
