Mothers Day Caddis fly tying video: Barrett’s P90 Caddis

Happ Father’s Day folks! This variation of the Matthews X-Caddis, dubbed the P90 by Barrett, is an excellent caddis imitation for the tough-to-fish Mothers Day Caddis blizzard hatches of the spring months. It’s also a good summer caddis pattern in various colors for the Deschutes. You’ll have to ask Barrett what the P90 means. Definitely a different spin on the caddis dry fly, with the curved shank hook, CDC underwing and the goose biot body.
