When Caddis are resting or skating across the water’s surface their wings are normally tented over their body. There are lots of way to imitate tented wings. Some patterns call for Deer Hair others for Duck Quill segments and if you really start poking around in tying books you’ll find many more materials. All of those materials have a place and almost all have proven their worth.
One method that I like but don’t see used often is Tape-Backed Tented Caddis Wings. If you’re looking for a good Caddis wing – watch this 3-minute video to see if Tape-Backed Tented Caddis Wings will meet your needs.
