Cammisa's CDC Green Caddis

If you fish in waterways known for caddisflies, here's a pattern that belongs in your fly box! This caddis is one that I fish to imitate the Grannom Caddis (also known in areas as the Mother's Day Caddis). This is a "new and improved" version of a previous video, and I'm sure you'll enjoy this one.

Bead: 3.0mm slotted (black nickel) from Hazard Fly Fishing
Thread: UNI 8/0; chartreuse
Body: Hends Body Quill (BQ-96); chartreuse

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
