In this video, Simon demonstrates how to tie a simple, but effective Caddis fly imitation. We really like the ease of Veevus Lucent Body in creating a quick durable body. The flash on the underside of the body makes it a great searching caddis pattern. The vertical hackle wraps can be clipped on the vise at home, or on the river for a lower riding imitation for picky fish. Use this pattern any time of the year; swap the hook size, body color, or hackle colors to match your seasonal needs.
