Mercer’s Tungsten Swing Caddis Fly Tying Video Instructions

Mercer's Tungsten Swing Caddis Emerger Pupa Fly Tying RecipeThe Mercer’s Tungsten Swing Caddis is both a great nymphing and swing caddis emerger pattern.  The Mercer’s Tungsten Swing Caddis has a Tungsten Bead integrated into the thorax.  This bead adds a lot of weight to the pattern, while still keeping the buggy profile.  The CDC in the fly will retain small air bubbles, just like a emerging caddis pupa.  The Ice Dub hides the Tungsten Bead in the thorax and also adds a hint of flash to the fly.  All in all, the Mercer’s Tungsten Swing Caddis is a very versatile caddis pattern!
