    Word is they're about a week to 10 days out; time to get cracking. Back half is the same as the updated Carnage Hopper; front end's Stimi-ish. The 3/32" heat shrink tubing and 2mm foam made for bodies a bit too chunky for what I wanted in a caddis, then I remembered it's "HEAT SHRINK" tubing, so I slid it on a thinner needle, applied some heat and shrunk it (probably half the diameter). For the foam, until I get some 1mm stuff, I just pulled/stretched a strip of the 2mm 'till it was the thickness I was looking for.



    hook - Dai Riki 280 #10
    thread - UTC 140 tan
    body - 2mm foam
    wing - elk hair
    legs - rubber medium burnt orange
    thorax - dubbing orange
    hackle - dark ginger


    Slide tubing on needle, apply a little heat (or get thinner tubing)

    Pull/stretch (gently) a strip of 2mm foam to get the desired thickness (side-by-side with 2mm)
