    Byron,
    The "E/C Caddis" isn't an elk hair caddis. E/C = emergent/cripple, and the two tone body of the E/C is for the same reason you described on your PMD above.

    Interesting fly. Did you have a natural in mind when you tied this?

    I don't think I could get such a defined stripe on dubbing. I'm guessing you have a thorax of ice dub or similar dubbing?
