    Hi
    I tie the F&K caddis, Klinkhamer etc, that way or similar as well.

    It helps to get the tippet subsurface, much quicker. You never have the tippet throwing a "shadow" or leaving a foot print.

    The eye of the hook forces the tippet under the water. WIth the surface tension broken the rest of the tippet easily disappears below the surface. Especially fishing with Fluoro carbon as tippet only. The rest of the mono leader wont pull you fly under.

    Good one Grant!

    I'm super keen to see how these fair in the hooking dept. I'm sure they'll get mega-takes, still not sure of their hooking ability

    Nice one Grant. What did you use for the body?

    Mario i am also sceptical of the hookups but only because the dressing goes too far round the bend.
