 TWO TONE CADDIS

 

Many of the caddis flies in our area have either an olive, tan or cream body.  This fly was first shown to me by fellow TU member and Lackawaxen river guide John Appert.  It sort of makes the color of the caddis fly body a little easier to solve by having two colors for the body!.  The pattern illustrated is tied with an olive and cream body but feel free to use your own color combinations.

Hook - Dry fly #14-#18

Thread - Olive 8/0

Body - Rear half- Olive, Front half -light tan or cream dubbing

Underwing - Hem pheasant wing slip tied tent style

Overwing - Lt. yearling elk or fine deer hair

Hackle - Dun
