Hook: TMC 100SPBL #14-20>>>>> Thread: 8/0 UNI, Brown>>>>> Shuck: Light Dun Zelon>>>>> Abdomen: Olive Brown Superfine Dubbing>>>>> Thorax: Olive Superfine Dubbing>>>>> Hackle: Grizzly Rooster neck or saddle>>>>> Wing: Natural Yearling Elk Hair
Pattern Description
This is Raalph Cutter's killer caddis pattern. He developed this pattern back in the eighties to better mimic the caddis as they emerge from their shuck. The unique profile and wing/hackle silhouette present a much more realistic view to the fish and can also cross over for a mayfly pattern in a pinch. This is a great fly to use when fish get picky on caddis and won't even look at something like a traditional Elk Hair Caddis. The lower floating attitude of the E/C Caddis might be just what they want.
