The Welfare-Cased Caddis by Johnny Mac

I grew up dirt poor, hence the name of this fly.  This is a simple pattern that you can tie a half dozen of very fast. As the winter fishing season progresses you can increase the size of the hook used to match the size of the nymphs in the river.

Hook: Dia-Riki 730 sz. 12 

Head: 7/64 Cyclops Bead, Black

Thread: 8/0 Waxed Uni-Thread, Olive

Body: Spanflex, Brown

Thorax: Hare'e Ice Dub, Caddis Green
