A foam extended body mayfly with a parachute hackle that will float all day long and then some. Don’t be fooled by this simple pattern that is not as challenging to tie as it looks, it just takes a little time.
A delta wing caddis with an interesting body technique that can be put to good use in many other caddis patterns. With split wings and a segmented body, that is still encased in the shuck, this is a good pattern for a struggling caddis stuck in the surface film.
A simple generic pheasant tail variant from basic materials, that works well, wherever-whenever. It’s interesting how a couple of elementary adjustments can make a pattern so different.
