Pattern Description
The X-Caddis comes from Yellowstone fishing guru Craig Matthews. Craig is the guy who brought us the Sparkle Dun and a host of other effective patterns, trademarked by their simplicity. The X-Caddis is no exception, and can be whipped out by the dozenz! I like the X-Caddis in smaller sizes, from 18-24, although it certainly holds it's own in bigger sizes as well. It imitates a caddis with the shuck still attached, but I think it's general profile can match many different isects in various stages of emergence..in other words, it just looks like food! Tie some up and see what you think.
Materials Needed:

Hook: TMC 100 #14-24............................ Thread: 8/0 Olive..................................... Shuck: Brown Zelon................................. Body: Olive Superfine or Antron Dubbing.......... Wing: Natural Deer Hair
