Every year we look forward to the Green McKenzie Caddis emergence on the McKenzie and Middle Fork of the Willamette Rivers. The bugs usually start showing themselves during the later half of April and remain an important fly pattern for your box through June. Barrett’s foam bodied CDC pattern in this video is a killer. The fly floats high, has excellent movement, coloration and durability.
