    Does anyone know the tying recipes or have tying instructions for the Light Cahill and the Sulfur Comparadun?

    Hello brother, I'm going to help you this time and I want you to let us know when you get a nice fish

    Lt. Cahill
    Hook: Mustad 94831 or 94840-#12-14
    Thread:Uni thread 8/0
    Tail: White or Golden Dun spade rooster hackle
    Abdomen: Full body-Lt Cahill superfine dubbing
    Wings: Hackle tips from white rooster cape or hen neck or calf body hair
    Hackle: Whiting 100s white quarter saddles

    Tying instructions
    Place hook in the vise and tie in thread--wind thread down to the hook bend.
    Take a section of spade hackle and tie in at a45% angle--make 3-4 turns across the hackle and allow the hackle barbs to slightly spin and move across the top of the hook until it is in correct position.
    Wind thread forward to the 3/4 point of the hook. Now tie in the hackle tips to be used for the wings. Tie them upright and divided. Move thread back to the hookbend.
    Now tie in the dubbing and wind forward to just behind the hookeye. Bring the thread back to slightly behind the wings and place hackle butt end thru the wings. Now tie in behind and in front of the wings to secure the hackle. Bring thread back to just behind the wings and behind the hackle.
    Wind the hackle forward 3-4 wraps behind the wings and 3 wraps in front of the wings. Now wind thread forward thru the hackle to secure it with 2-3 wraps behind the wings and 2-3 wraps in front. Tie off and whip finish. You're finished and good luck.
