Dark Cahill Style Wet Fly: Fly Tying Video

They say the only constant is change and that seems to hold true here in the shop. With this tie, we’re adding a twist to a classic with some modern materials. The Cahill pattern stands the test of time, as it was initially tied by Dan Cahill over 100 years ago. The original Cahill dry pattern Dan tied imitated a Pale Morning or Evening Dun. This one imitates October Caddis and while there still may be a few kicking around into November, don’t fear throwing these all fall and winter long.

Anyhow, we enjoy this simple beauty and think you might, too.
