CCG Caddis flies

It is warming up a bit and I saw my first Danica of the season on Wednesday.
I have a boxful of Danica which I will be overfilling in the next few days.
Meanwhile I have been getting my motor functions back tying dry caddis flies
Hooks are size 16 to 10
Bodies are hare'sear dubbing with optional hackle ribbing
Hackles are cock hackle over hare's ear or just hare's ear picked out
Wings are partridge or grouse set with a layer of Clear Cure Goo
then cut to shape.
