Razor Foam Caddis – Carl Pennington

Carl Pennington has a great little tutorial for tying up this fly. It is a simple pattern, and what I really like about it that it is quick to tie, it will easily float a nymph, and it has a great natural looking taper. The key to the taper is the bias cut into the tie down end of the foam. Just three materials for this quick and easy pattern. Enjoy!
