Swimming Caddis

Our old friend John Petermann who is a very skilled flyfisher, certified flycaster and finally but not at least he is a very creative flytyer tying some excellent flies for all kind of fish he is targeting. He is fishing worldwide for GT, permit, tarpon, bonefish, salmon and steelhead - but trout fishing is deep in his heart. In this video he is showing his skills tying a Swimming Caddis, lean back and be inspired. Happy tying and thanks to John for showing one of his secret weapons from the box.

The GFF money box

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.
