Fly of the Month
The Henryville (a.k.a. Henryville Special) was created years ago by Hiram Probst
of Palmerton, PA and named after the famed section of Brodhead’s Creek. It has remained
a popular and effective caddis imitation ever since. My version has a dubbed body
instead of the original floss. I also tie the overwing around the sides of the body
forming a tent, as opposed to the higher wet style seen in many commercial ties.
Although the duck quill wing is not as sturdy as the deer or elk hair used in newer
patterns, in my experience the fly remains just as effective when it becomes frayed
