HARROP'S HENRY'S FORK CADDIS
"I give a tip of the hat to BB member Normand for an idea on how to present this very effective caddis pattern." - John Scott
Lost in the transmission ....
A few weeks ago, Normand posted a tutorial that he had prepared for another site. He had the tying instructions printed on the photos for each step of the tying sequence.

The intent was to have only the opening and closing comments and a series of six photos. Something very different from my prior submissions. Unfortunately, the color that I chose, which looked great on my home computer while I was preparing the "presentation", got lost in the transmission, and the tying instructions are practically unreadable at least on a couple of the photos. Neil and / or Ron salvaged the presentation by adding the tying instructions for each step.
P.S. As far as a presentation tip goes, how about two of them. First, when you include the tying instructions on the photos for your next FOTW presentation, use black like Normand did, not that gaudy color I chose. Second, while I usually present this fly dead drift on top, the last fish I caught on the South Fork of the Snake before I moved to Montana was a big cutthroat that took it as a wet fly on a down and across swing.:shock:
