Tan Caddis Dry Fly

The Tan Caddis is an insect found on so many of our waterways, and there are many flies out there to represent it. This pattern is a variation of many you may know, but can be quickly tied due to the "Caddis Wings" material referenced in the video. Aside from that product, I also share some ways to change this pattern to an emerger and other caddis types. This is part of my "Two Minute Tying" series, and is a great dry fly that can be tied quickly and easily at the vise.

Featured in this video are the D103BL hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; you can find those hooks and many others at the following link:

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.
