Pattern Description
This unconventional little parachute caddis pattern comes from the vise of Dave Bloom of Montana's Missouri River. Dave is a contract tyer for Idylwilde Flies and his patterns are in huge demand for the techy fish of the Big Mo. This is a cool pattern to tie and fish, its' hi viz para post making it easy to see and the unique golden pheasant rope body is a great match for many of our caddis species down Colorado way as well. Feel free to alter colors as needed to match up with your local bugs.
