How to tie the Buck Caddis

Fabisch Fly Fish Blog


Fly tying instruction the Buck Caddis. The Buck Caddis is a super allround fly pattern. Its great success is due to optimum floating properties and a great silhouette. A fly fisherman can see it even in white water, and it is very easy to tie.

1. wrap your thread all along the hook shank

3. dub the hook shank sparsely, leaving sufficient room behind the hook's eye

4. palmer your hackle along the hook shank, again leaving sufficient room behind the eye. DON'T cut your hackle at this point!

5. take a bundle of deer hair and align the tips using a hair stacker, then tie it in behind the eye. Take care not to try to tie in too thick a bundle, otherwise you'll have a hard time controlling it.

6. usually I also cut this bundle to suitable length to avoid too much trouble trimming the ends near the eye. When you tie the hair in, the stubs should NOT protrude beyond the eye.

8. color your thread to your liking with a waterproof marker and make a whip finish. Done!
