Tying the Iris Caddis

You've seen the step by step photo tying instructions we have posted in the past, and they have been good (sort of), but this is the tits! 

Seriously, Tim Flagler aka Tightline Productions, has produced the first Caddis Chronicles full length tying video.  We chose Craig Mathew's of Blue Ribbon Flies, Iris Caddis pattern, as it is a killer fly when the Hydropsychidae are hatching on just about any North American river or stream.  And they do hatch, from May through September.  It also imitates other caddis species that hatch in a similar fashion - drifting in the surface film for a short period before launching straight into the air.

Tie some up and fish them, you won't be disappointed.

All comments and feedback are welcome!
