Champions Caddis - (with thanks to Jeremy Lucas)
The 2010 World FF Champs were held on the San River where hatches of danica mayflies were prolific & gammarus shrimps were migrating upstream. The fish weren't interested in imitations of these & most teams moved over to Caddis imitations as there were sporadic hatches, and the flies were working. Jeremy Lucas (ex-England) was guiding Team Australia before the event, and this is what he came up with. During the event he observed that most of the best teams were using very similar flies.
Using a #12 or #14 dry fly hook, furl some bright orange nylon wool or floss to create a tail. (This one is a bit on the long side, as I prefer more fly & less hook).
Tie it on and prepare a noodle of squirrel or hare mask/ear dubbing.
Dub the body till about two thirds or three quarters to the eye
Tie in an underwing of two CdC feathers, tips aligned with tail.
Cut & stack some deer or klipspringer hair, and tie on as you would an elk hair caddis.
You can then finish it off, unless you want a sighter to help you see the fly.
In that case, put a bit of the wool or floss on top, tie down, trim & then whip finish.
