This version of Harry Lemire's Thompson River Caddis was tied by William Lovelace.
Bill's Notes: This Harry Lemire pattern was originally dubbed with Watery Green Seal or more recently Musk Ox for the body. The Moose body was spun using black size A Nymo or Kevlar thread. After spreading the Moose hair in the dubbing loop about 80% is trimmed off the bottom before spinning the loop to form the legs and head. Harry was a great tyer and gentleman who passed away in 2012 and has been missed! His legacy will live on in the NW at the Shows and in the Rivers!
