Vernal Caddis

During the Spring, caddis larva are a big food source for trout and steelhead. They become dislodged from the gravel when steelhead start fanning the rocks to make their beds. Next time you're on the river, tie this on, and drift it through the pool below any active gravel. Pretty solid fly choice. They are super easy to tie, and the clear vinyl rib adds durability, and a nice segmentation that looks better than plain wire. Get with the program and tie some up. Can't go wrong with this one!
