  This months fly is the Loopwing Caddis Emerger.  This pattern has no history that I can find.  It was given  to me to copy by a customer who raved about its fish catching ability.  It is a fly that can look like a dun, emerger, or cripple on the water.  It can be hard to see in the film, so can be used as a dropper connected to a bigger fly.
Hook  - dry fly 14 - 18
Thread - tan
Tail (shuck) - tan sparkle yarn
Body & head - tan dubbing
Wing - tan sparkle yarn
