    Default Bracken Clock










    A vintage pattern; originally used as a sunken beetle, in larger sizes (as here) it should work as a general attractor (or just a big-a.s beetle).

    I like it. Admittedly, I had to look up the definition of Bracken. "Large Fern". Wonder how a Clock is related to the name? Season?

    "Clock" is a U.K. term for beetle.

    Bracken clock (the insect) is pretty much the same as Coch y Bonddu (the insect). Both of the artificials by those names go back hundreds of years.

    Pretty simple. Caddis hatched in Michigan. Nothing strange about that. Looks like other Caddis except with an accent. A
