Another pattern from the vise of Aaron Freed of Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone, MT. This fly is tied to represent the Nectopsyche caddis, aka the white miller, that hatches on the Firehole and Madison Rivers in Yellowstone National Park. It is also found on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River in Idaho. After watching a video on the BRF website , I thought that this fly could be used on our area streams to represent the Apple Green Caddis that hatch on our local waterways.
