Autumn Caddis Emerger

The Autumn Caddis Emerger is one of the most versatile flies that I fish. I am using an AFF N304 hook (straight-eye, 2x-short, 3x-wide scud/emerger hook. Check them out at

The midge tubing and wire gives the abdomen great translucency and segmentation. The peacock dubbing and krystal flash reflects UV light quite well, while the brahma hen hackle gives great movement to the fly while in the water. I will fish this fly either on the swing or dead drift just below the surface. Try tying this pattern using different colors of thread, tubing and wire to match the caddis in your local fishery.
