Taking the good pieces of what worked, throwing out the bad and adding some additional features brought me to the vise and into this guy.
Now at first you can possibly see the vestiges of a caddis pupa, but the outline is far from an pupa. Yet, a lot of the fish from this past week on the Truckee and East Walker were keyed on a similar trail tie. But this one differs in one major aspect because of one special material used in a way I haven't used it before.
It gets wrapped in bubbles like a kid in a soapy hot tub! No sunken floatant here.
