Chewee Skin Green McKenzie Soft Hackle

Swinging wets during the Green McKenzie Caddis emergence can be deadly. We like to combine a larger “emerger” wet below a high floating dry, or use the wet above a Dark Cahill in a tandem wet fly rig. In this video Barrett demonstrates another cool use of Chewee Skin from Hareline Dubbin. Chewee Skin is really easy to work with for wingcases and body wraps as in the case of this wet fly pattern. Try the U.V yellow for a smaller Pale Morning Dun pattern as well.
