Get ready, because it’s been a high-water winter and the McKenzie River Green Caddis hatch should be a major event this spring. In these videos, The Caddis Fly’s Chris Daughters demonstrates how to tie this classic Oregon dry fly pattern. The first version is a simple, stripped down high floating fly. The second video features the same fly with a lime green underwing.
