Emerging Caddis Spey, was tied by contributing fly tyer Jack Cook. See his notes about this fly below.

Jack's Notes:This pattern appeared after I spent a few days fishing with Bob Meiser on the Rogue. We were in the midst of a major Caddis emergence and the Steelhead were going crazy. The fish were really keyed in on the hatch and this pattern with the Olive-Brown body was just the ticket. Once again the use of copper in the body makes it even better.
