Squirrel & CDC Caddis

Cheech - June 24, 2018

I'm confident that caddisflies were created to give anglers confidence in catching fish. Not only do fish eat them with reckless abandon, but a drag free drift isn't always necessary. To top that off, caddis are scraggly in appearance, so you can incorporate a lot of different messy materials to get them to look just right. Yes... Caddis season is your friend. This pattern is about as basic as it gets with caddis because it only uses a few materials, and it also can be fished in the film, under the surface, or high on the top. There really isn't much more to explain about this super simple bug... Time to spin a few up and fish them!
