Fluttering Caddis

Cheech - August, 2018

Iremember learning how to fish caddis dry flies on my home river years ago (once I realized that I was fishing the wrong part of the day.) This hatch was so different from my usual midge and baetis hatches that I usually would fish because everything moved so much quicker. The fish would rise quickly, the bugs would hatch quickly, and most importantly, I could skate and twitch my fly quickly. This was a dream come true for a guy who didn't like to use fine tippet and needed a LOT of work on his presentation. One of the first fish I caught during a real caddis hatch came as I was stripping my line up stream getting ready for another cast... The lights turned on, and I spend the rest of the evening loading up my flies with floatant and twitching them across the current. Since then, I have tied lots of flies that are good at both skating and dead drifting. This one is no exception. This fly is designed to act like a caddis that is fluttering all around ready to take off, drinking water, or laying eggs. The key to this bug in my opinion, is that you keep it loaded with floatant whether it be a powder floatant, or a CDC compatible gel like Loon Lochsa (my favorite choice.) Anyway, tie some up, twitch them around, and catch fish. ~ Cheech
