    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge, still loving the recent explosion of tying tips.

  2. Hey guys, this video is marked private. Looks like a cool pattern.

  3. Jay Nicholas says:

    Chris: you are very welcome. More to come, I promise. It is fun to share. Expect some cool tube flies to follow one of these days.

    Hey guys, I turned this video public earlier today, so if it’s giving anybody problems, just click on the video and watch it on the YouTube page.

    Don’t worry. Nothing unsavory happens in this video. It is family friendly, I assure you. It does mention the word “worm”, though, if anyone finds this offensive, excuse us.

    Thanks so much for these great patterns. I only wish I had this one when I lived in Wyoming. I’d flip over stones and see these green bugs with black heads and tie (in my low/no skill way) something like (in description only) this. Anyway, these videos are really inspiring me to tie more. Thanks!

    Would you tie this in a tan color for tan caddis as well? If so, would you just use a tan rabbit mixed with ice dub?
