    Default A Fly Encouraged by PlanetTrout's pattern

    I have, for many years, fished a caddis pupa soft hackle pattern which has worked wonderfully for me and others. If I can locate a picture, I will post it as well.

    After seeing a pattern by PlanetTrout, I thought I would morph my soft hackle pattern into the next stage of a caddis, a partially emerged, perhaps crippled caddis with the attached shuck.

    Cannot speak to effectiveness, as have not had a chance to fish it, but look forward to doing so.

    ere is Hans Weilenmann's photo of the soft hackle version I alluded to:

    Looks a lot like a Europa caddis with a trailing shuck.

    I don't fish lakes, but am anxious to try it on the Henry's Fork.

    Hi Byron, I've just looked up where I first came across this pattern and it is miss named there, should be the streaking caddis, appologies for the confusion I was miss informed. Here's a pic of of it, this one isn't mine. I've seen them done on curved and straight hooks.

    Cheers,

    That makes more sense AlanB. I was trying to imitate a cripple rather than an adult. I shortened the upright deer hair, added a rib, and a trailing shuck to make it more like a cripple.
    Make sense?
