Fly of the Month

February  2012

 

Antron Caddis

 

This Craig Mathews pattern is as versatile as it is simple to tie.  It’s highly imitative silhouette makes it an excellent smooth water fly and the deer hair wing makes it a good floater for skating or to use in fast water.  When tying be sure to select deer hair that is hollow to the tipos for good floatation.  Flare the wing out over the top of the hook and extend it just beyond the bend.  By varying wing shad and body color this fly will imitate most caddis species encountered.

 

Hook  --  Mustad 94840, #14-#20

Body  --  Antron Dubbing; green, black, olive, or gold

Wing  --  Deer hair; light or dark
