Henry's Fork Caddis

Curtis - December, 2018

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...
