DEET's flies kick ass and I'm always 2 weeks late catching them. DEET, feel free to PM me the directions on your woolhead posted here. It actually looks more like EP fibers than wool. But I like the volume created, and what appears to be a pretty simple tie

Cool! Is this thing a tandem? Look like it due to the length.

I secured a 100 LB loop of braided steel core line to the shank through the eye and Zap-A-Gap it. That way I can loop a stinger hook on or take it off while fishing. These are prototype flies for this spring so we'll see how they work (Hopefully in a couple weeks). I've haven't had a problem so far with missing them on a short shank hook but I've also never fished a fly this long...

I have a couple of 10", 12" and one 15" fly I use for muskie fishing. In my case i never need a tandem hook, if the muskie is going to take the fly well he is going to take the whole thing. And casting them is not too bad along as there is little to no rabbit fur on it. A 10" fly with rabbit fur running the body is deadly. My friend has a fly like that and uses a 12 wt to cast it. I am currently working on a fly that will set the hook further back will be 9" long with the hook half way down around 4-5" range. It will also have a bit of a rattle to it. The prototype I designed last year was destroyed by a muskie within the first 10 casts of using it.

The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian.

Laugh away, it looks like a car wreck or something that my 4-H group wrapped up, but this case caddis pattern is very effective.

Materials

Hook: Tiemco 5262 size 10-16 or any 2X long standard nymph hook
Thread: Gray 8/0 [or 14/0 Gordon Griffith for Glista or better.]
Butt: Synthetic Caddis green [singe with that lighter, you use so frequently.....cough]
Legs: Mallard Flank [see below for correct length]
Body: Dark or Natural Hare's Ear.[dubbed loosely like your X] with the taper reverse of most dries.
Tippett: 3X with over hand Knot [optinal] for attaching split shot, and yes I thought the same thing......... really. The trout just don't give a fuck.

I always enjoy checking in here to see the kinds of things everyone else ties and fishes. That cased caddis is neat, I thought WTF when I first saw the knotted mono, but it makes sense...

Yum!

FYI - If you put the eyes closer to the middle of the shank and palmer around them, you get a little different action. The fly "shimmies" in more of a horizontal profile, than the "jigging" action you get with the eyes up front.
