How to Tie the Rough Water Caddis

Here’s a great caddisfly imitation from Norwegian tier Gunnar Bingen, which is meant to be fished in rough, broken water. I’ll bet that it also works well as a skittering caddis, too. In this typically awesome video, Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions walks you through the tying process, demonstrating great materials-handling techniques. One of my bigger frustrations when I first started tying was that I had difficulty keeping the materials in place; they always wanted to rotate or slide. What I enjoy about watching Tim’s videos is that he takes the time to show the viewer exactly how he holds, wraps, and secures each material.
