Slick Willie Caddis

Cheech - December, 2019

This is such a simple caddis pattern that there is really no excuse but to tie them... I first saw this style of body on a Loon Live with Matt Callies so I put it in the memory bank for future use. There is something about the braided material being soaked with resin that makes it look just like a nasty little wormy caddis! Tie them up in various sizes and colors!
