Henry's Fork Caddis

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Henry's Fork Caddis

So Brandon (aka Feather Flinger) ties up one of his favorite caddis patterns and a popular one at that: The Henry's Fork Caddis.

While Brandon uses some sprechly Speckled Badger hackle, we recommend the much-easier-to-get Hebert Miner in Light Tan Dun

This caddis floats flush on the water and has a great silhouette. Plus, with the super-floaty CDC from Henry's Fork Trout Hunter gang, this one's a winner!

Give it a try...
