Project Description

X Caddis

Pattern Description:

The X-Caddis comes from Yellowstone fishing guru Craig Matthews. Craig is the guy who brought us the Sparkle Dun and a host of other effective patterns, trademarked by their simplicity. The X-Caddis is no exception, and can be whipped out by the dozens! I like the X-Caddis in smaller sizes, from 18-24, although it certainly holds its own in bigger sizes as well. It imitates a caddis with the shuck still attached, but I think its general profile can match many different insects in various stages of emergence..in other words, it just looks like food! Tie some up and see what you think.

Materials Needed:

Hook: #14-24 TMC 100 SPBL Thread: White GSP 50-Denier Shuck: Ginger or Amber Zelon Body: Brown or Olive Superfine Dubbing Wing: Natural Deer Hair
