Matt's Light Caribou Caddis, size #14-18
Iris Caddis, size #14-16. Designed by C. Mathews and J. Juracek. This wonderful combination of fur and zelon, imitates the emergence stage of our most prevelant caddis genus, the Hydropsyche. The pupa swims to the water surface and drifts for a short period right in the meniscus, and then when ready, the adult pops out and is immediately airborn, flying around like a drunk sailor. The fly imitates that vulnerable period when the pupae are drifting in preparation of hatching - all the trout have to do is look up and see the familiar silhouette, and BAMMO! Fish on..........
And finally, an apple green Caribou Caddis, sixe #14, to match the Apple Caddis so present right now.
