Chewy Green Caddis Larva

DESCRIPTION: When we talk & think about spring Creeks, we tend to focus on mayfly species as they are typically more abundant than other food sources. When I was collecting insect samples at DePuy’s Spring Creek, I was so amazed to see various size of caddis larva in green.  Large ones (10 to 20mm) would be either Hydropsyche or Green Caddis.  But also I found small kinds ranging from 4 to 6mm.  Main materials used are stretchy vinyl materials (hence the name).  It’s fun to tie and very realistic!!

Large (size 8)


Smaller (size 16)


Small with Scud hook


SIZE: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, & 20 (SPECIFY 2XL curved hooks or Scud hooks)
PRICE: $2.25
TYING INSTRUCTION: available in both Word File and in my YouTube channel.
