Here are my favorite patterns that have been producing.
Unnamed Caddis - Mother's Day Egg Sack
I like this pattern a lot. A dubbing portion to imitate the egg sack catches trout's eyes as well as yours!!
Para Fluttering Mother's Day Caddis
So you would drive along either river and billions of caddis hit your windshield. Once you stand along the river, hundreds of caddis will crawl over you! BUT!! Are trout rising or coming up on your dry-fly offerings? Perhaps but not whole a lot. Real rising starts in the evening when caddis come back to water surface to lay eggs. Under the remaining last light, even the most buoyant dry-fly is almost all impossible to see. We need something that stands out.......... That's when this unconventional parachute pattern earns a spot. Parachute makes a nice contrast and sticks up on the surface without disturbing the caddis silhouette. And this can be fished for either quiet drift or fluttering effect by adding some manipulation.
My own Double Soft Hackled Caddis in Mother's Day version. This is THE KILLER!! Don't Forget to trail this behind whatever dry-fly you choose!!
PRICE: $2.25 each
Get ready for next spring!!
