Wee Woolly Caddis

Hey Threadheads! This fly pattern is the design of Joe Johnson. It's a quick and dirty caddis pattern with a ton of weight to get the fly down quickly. The original pattern calls for "Wee Wool", but I've used UNI-Yarn here.
The pattern can be found in Pat Dorsey's Colorado Guide Flies book (Pg 133). I recommend this for every fly tyers library as the book is chock-full of great fly patterns for all waters.

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.
