Pattern Description
The Serendipity comes from Blue Ribbin Flies up out of West Yellowstone and at this moment, has become a pretty old school pattern. A simple midge/caddis pupa, the Serendipity uses just a couple of materials and can be tied slim and sparse or heavy and chunky to better replicate your insect of choice. I've used this pattern on our western tailwaters with good success as well as on rivers like the Colorado.
