CDC Deer Caddis

Cheech - December, 2019

We completely realize that the name of this fly is completely lame and generic, but the part that matters is that it's a super buggy, buoyant, and durable caddis pattern. We use some cool techniques to make a full CDC wing and a hackle made from deer hair. With the dubbing, just make sure to cut the ice dub to about 1/2" and pulse blend it with squirrel in a coffee grinder. Just two or three pulses will get it completely blended and ready to use!
