This super simple fly has been a moneymaker in the Black Hills this last season. The chartreuse and black version works great, but you can tie this pattern in any variety of color combinations. Great weight fly or point fly on a Czech nymph rig. Super durable and easy tie!
This fly has been a moneymaker this year on Spearfish Creek! Nice and heavy, and it makes a fantastic bottom fly in a Czech style rig. Adjust the colors to match your local fish, but this caddis green version works very well!
Hydropsyche Caddis Larva
This has been a solid producer for me in areas with good populations of free swimming caddis larvae. This pattern is very similar to the caddis patterns of Oliver Edwards. Hydropsyche Caddis LarvaThanks for the great tips and instruction Oliver! The legs are a great addition to any caddis larva pattern, or stoneflies and clinger mayfly nymphs.

CDC Bubble Wing Caddis
Here is a great fly from Oliver Edwards outstanding DVD “Essential Patterns Vol. 1”. Check out this DVD for several more cracking patterns.I tie this in a few sizes for the caddis hatches found here in the black hills. Sizes 14-16 are particularly well suited for the waters I fish. The color schemes of light brown to tan work best for the hatches I fish.
