Pattern Description
The Web Wing Caddis is the latest addition to John Barr's collection of exemplary patterns. A perfect rendition of a natural caddis, the Web Wing is a prime candidate for slower water sections of river or stillwater and spooky, selective fish. John relates that he developed this pattern on the Missouri River in Montana while fishing with George Anderson. It seems there were great caddis hatches but the fish were having none of the traditional patterns. John pulled out the web wing prototypes that he had reserved for just such an occasion and, well, here we are!
