LOON OUTDOORS - El Vato Caddis - Step By Step Tutorial

Matt Callies of Loon Outdoors recently sat down at the vise to put together a couple tutorials to share on T.F.M. and the first is a killer pattern called the El Vato Caddis.

No real need for a narrative since you should be able to figure everything out with the photographs.  The recipe however, would be helpful, eh?

Hook - Daiichi 1130
Thread - Veevus 50d
Tail - Micro Pearl Core Braid
Float - Brown 2mm Foam
Legs - Black CDC
Thorax - UV Ice Dub & Deer Hair

If you need a video to help you along then check out this LOON LIVE session which will also give you the step by step on this pattern. There is also a bonus Ray Bergman March Brown pattern in the video as well.
