This unconventional little parachute caddis pattern comes from the vise of Dave Bloom of Montana’s Missouri River. Dave is an awesome tyer and his patterns are in huge demand for the techy fish of the Big Mo. This is a cool pattern to tie and fish, its hi viz para post making it easy to see and the unique golden pheasant rope body is a great match for many of our caddis species down Colorado way as well. Feel free to alter colors as needed to match up with your local bugs.
