A downwing version of the Irresistable. Like the Goddard Caddis above, this is a great combination of flotation & silhouette.

hook: #12-16 standard dry fly
thread: tan or brown
tail: moose hair (optional)
body:caribou or deer hair spun & clipped. Try tan with a black stripe in the middle.
hackle: For best silhouette, none. For *huge* flotation & skateability, palmer a stiff hackle through the spun hair.
wing: Deer or elk hair, downwing with butts uncovered to form head (a la Elk Hair Caddis).
