FOAM BUTT CADDIS
The FBC was originally tied as a cricket pattern for the summer months of central Pennsylvania. It's a versatile pattern that fishes great as intended, and doubles as a warm water popper. It could be called Bluegill candy as well since they cannot ignore it when twitched, and can be irresistible to Brookies when fished along those shady undercut hemlock banks.
The original pattern lacked the Ice-dub chin. But after 2 years of the chin being added, it's there to stay. Tied from #12 through #8, it's an extremely effective pattern.
