Tying JC's Electric Caddis Pupa

Our friend John Collins recently sat down with Tightline Productions to demonstrate how he ties his electric caddis pupa.  John is an accomplished fly tyer and fisherman, whose passion for the sport is evident in every fly he ties.  This pattern has proven itself over the last few years in our area, and can be adapted to imitate any of the myriad of caddis available in our waters.  John will be at the International Fly Tying Symposium in November demonstrating this and other original patterns of his. 

Nice job, John!

That's a lovely tie, Matt. Is the abdomen dubbing simply to add bulk before wrapping the wire + tubing body?

Hi Andy. Yes, John ties a nice fly. I believe he adds the dubbing where he does to produce a body that is tapered somewhat like a football. Matt
