Another cool lake fly from B.C. tyer Phil Rowley. Although tied with a dry saddle, it's webby enough to qualify as soft hackle.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
thread - UTC 140 olive
shuck - Congo Hair white
rib - Mirage Flash opal
abdomen - Crystal Chenille olive
wingcase/wing - deer hair
hackle - ginger (a good webby saddle creates the impression of a thorax)


Regards,
Scott

For those who are curious, western Canada gets some big caddis. I've seen some adults on fishing trips that were close to the length of my little finger. It gets exciting when a fish "rises" to your imitation. Makes a swirl almost as big as a wash tub.
