A very easy to follow foam frog pattern that will be sure to lure in bass this summer
A great nymph pattern that not only looks great but is durable. Color and size can be easily adapted to meet local conditions and bugs.
Rylee’s LiL’ Helper is an easy tie midge/larva pattern that has had great success on the White River and Taneycomo. Straight forward and durable pattern, no fluff.
Check out Lucas Langton’s adaptation of the x-caddis. The difference between this pattern and a traditional X-caddis pattern is the body material and the foam hidden in the wing..
Lucas shows a great tutorial of a emerged/ cripple pattern. With some tweaks to color and size, this can be an effective fly on any body of water.
This is a spinoff of the Crime Scene Caddis tied by Bob Quigley, who happens to be my favorite fly tyer of all time. Bob passed away this past summer after a battle with cancer. He was a fly tying innovator giving us new patterns and new techniques to catch those finicky spring creek trout.
The parafoam style is an ingenious way of incorporating foam which helps floatability and the para- loop hackle which keeps the hackle on top of the fly which allows the fly to ride better in the surface film. The parafoam style dries make really effective emerger and cripple patterns.
You can’t get a more traditional dry fly than an Elk Hair Caddis, there has been thousands if not millions of trout caught on this fly and I’m willing to bet most anglers have at least have one Elk Hair Caddis in their fly box. My biggest complaint with this pattern is how it rides on the surface of the water, unless you trim the hackle off the bottom more times than not it rides sideways and does not stabilize on the surface until the body and hackle take in some water. My solution is Rylee’s Pullover Caddis.
