Fly Tying Video JC'S Electric Caddis Larva


This week our resident fly tying guru John Collins ties one of his signature patterns J.C.'s Electric Caddis Larva in our first fly tying video segment. This new style of fly was created by John Collins. This fly has a whole new luminescence and segmentation representing nymphs larva or emergers. The main thing you need to remember when putting the wire in the tubing is that you hold the wire still and gently spin the tubing on to the wire. If you spin the wire and hold the tubing it will not work!!!
