Oftentimes, when I show the Tabou Caddis Emerger to fellow fly fishers, they comment on how simple it is and buggy looking, "Why didn't I think of that?!...that thing's gotta work! buggy...", they comment. Well, they hit the nail on the head with the simplistic bugginess concept, but I claim the pattern really isn't new, I think it's just a new way to tie an emerging caddis with some under-used and relatively unknown materials in my flytying material collection.

I'm heading out to Colorado in a week. While looking at fishing reports, one of the reccomended flies was the Tabou Caddis. I never heard of it. After a quick google ....and wha la there it is. Very cool fly. I love the way it looks. After looking through my desk and calling the local fly shops and finding no Bramha Hen skins, I decided to try the fly with my Hungarian Partrige pelt. It worked great!! It has a combination of pale cream, tan and grey. I can't wait to try them out.
