Seeing Rays West Branch Caddis made me want to share my favorite caddis dry. This fly floats like cork, is easy to tie, and can be adapted to any caddis hatch. The original pattern calls for antenna but I seldom bother. You can see a high vis version and tying instructions here: [url=http://www.flyfishingmainerivers.com/writerpages/marshall/articles/flies/hivzebra/hivZcaddis.htm:d1812]http://www.flyfishingmainerivers.com/writerpages/marshall/articles/flies/hivzebra/hivZcaddis.htm[/url:d1812]
I have had fantastic results with this fly. If I had to pick just one fly to fish the Kennebec (in Maine) with this would be it! I apologize for the photo but I am just learning to use my camera.
