Light Cahill Wet – tied by Eric Austin

LightCahillWet

Hook: Standard wet fly hook, #10,#12 or #14
Thread: Uni 8/0 “Cahill”
Tail: Light ginger hackle or coq de leon
Body: Cahill dubbing or dubbing made from light fox belly fur
Hackle: Light ginger
Wings: Wood duck flank

I’ve had good luck with this one on Ohio’s Mad River in the early summer. When dead drifted past rising fish the strikes can be awe inspiring. This fly is very popular on Pennsylvania spring creeks as well. Check out Eric’s website here.
