Pheasant Tail X-Caddis

A Pheasantly pleasing X-Caddis

Delicious PT X-Caddis
Pete Steen returns for the final caddis in this current series (I'm sure there will be more, so no worries there).

Couple of things here: First off, the X-Caddis is a must-have pattern when it comes to caddis imitations. Secondly, pheasant tail on any pattern is like the secret sauce that fish can't resist. It's akin to Cheech and cotton candy as gas stations:  don't necessarily need it but it's pretty and so so tasty. Nom nom.

Anyhoo...enjoy this one!!!
