WingRed Squirrel Tail or Calftail, Divided and Pointing Forward. (The Wing is Tied In Before Body)
CollarSparse Brown Hackle Wound Behind Wing

This is another adult caddis fly pattern, developed by Bill Bakke from Oregon. It is fished by twitching it in the surface film to imitate a struggling caddis fly. The divided and forward pointing wings, enhance the wobbling, erratic action of this fly.
