Wow Bill!
More nice looking caddis patterns! I particularly like the body work on both! These look like the real McCoy! The Eurasian dove looks good against each dubbed body! Nice combination Bill!

Any of these three patterns is worth fishing; they're gorgeous. But the third pattern is the the one, the one I'm stealing. Wonderful ties, Bill. Thank you.

I was thinking the same thing, Mike. The others may catch fish just as well, but that one caught at least two fishermen.
