    Tying the Extended Body Light Cahill

    Back in the 70's, Harry Darbee came out with his Two-Feathered mayfly pattern, and ever since then I have experimented using the technique to create my own semi-realistic patterns. The use of the arching woodduck flank feather to imitate the tail and abdomen always looked so right to me for imitating mayfly adults.

    You may have seen my March Brown dry I tie this way that is a combination of tradition Catskill dry and this tailing technique. This pattern combines the tailing technique with one of my favorite materials, Snowshoe Rabbit Foot. It is incredibly durable, fairly easy to tie, and works very well. You can adapt the pattern by changing size and body color to imitate green drakes, brown drakes and other large mayfly patterns. Hat's off to Tim Flagler for another great production.

    I forgot to mention.....if you don't have woodduck flank, you can use mallard and even light teal will work, too.

    Here are my first two attempts.....soon it will be right...
    the dubbed body is too long, but I believe the fish will eat these.....
    Aren't I an awesome photographer....
