It's a simple fly to tie, using some of the techniques I use on my other flies. As you can see from the above fly, after taking a number of good fish, it is durable and will continue to take fish........until I break it off on a back cast! The egg sac is imitated with caddis green zelon, and although the natural's egg sac is a darker green, I believe the exaggeration helps triggger strikes.
Hook: TMC 100 #16-18
Thread: 6/0 Olive
Egg Sac: Caddis green zelon
Body: Tan dubbing
Underwing: Clear zelon
Overwing: Snowshoe rabbit foot hair or caribou hair
Thorax: Touch dubbed natrual hare's mask
Awesome fly for anywhere caddis are found.

Nice! I am excited about a pair of orange hares feet I just picked up. I can't wait to whip up some fresh October caddis styles.
Hope your having fun!
Love this Matt. Natural born killer...
