Default Re: Looking for nitro caddis recipe

Here is a Nitro Caddis I found:

...at Deschutes Angler, in Olive

It looks remarkably like a pattern that was developed by Canadian tier, Jeremy Davies about eight years ago...he used ostrich herl for the collar/thorax...

PEARL CORE BRAID CADDIS PUPAE

Hook: TMC 2457, Diiachi 1120, # 14-16

Thread: Gordon Griffith’s 14/0 Black, Brown

Abdomen: Midge Pearl Core Braid, Olive, Tan, Black or Grey

Wing: Mottled partridge, Natural, Dyed brown or olive

Thorax: Black, brown or olive Ostrich Herl

Bead: Gold, Black

The Nitro Caddis appears to have a collar/thorax made from Olive/Brown Ice Dub...The pattern is from Umpqua so it should not be too difficult to get one's hands on it to de-construct...

Hope this helps !!!
