Splitsville Caddis

Featured in this fly tying tutorial is the Splitsville Caddis, a pattern created by Jonny King. This is a newer patter that utilizes a method called the "Hackle Stacker." This method, developed by Bob Quigley, is combined with a caddis hair wing, making for an incredibly buggy look. The Splitsville Caddis is also being sold currently by Orvis, and I anticipate many fish succumbing to it over the years.

As mentioned in the video, Jonny's pattern is featured in the February / March issue of "Fly Fisherman," along with other variations. I encourage you to check that issue out, and apply this technique to other flies. If you decide to adapt this method to your own patterns, be sure to include that in the comments sections on this YouTube page so that others can get their creative juices flowing, too.

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.
