Default Re: Caddis flies

I have been tying up some caddis and sedge bugs lately...these are patterns I have used for sevaral is pretty common...and some are special ones I came up with myself...

I personally feel the right fly can make a big difference...flies dont have to be hard to tie either...I am an intermediate tyer myself...but I love tying my own an catching fish with them...

here are my caddis imitation flys I use for tout...I think seeing the caddis profile is important in clear shadow waters...sedge or caddis are one on my most favorite dry fly patterns ..the other being may flys...both are pretty common where I fish...the big caddis flys are around from may til september...

my "pocketwater" sedge..sort of a mix of a few of the patterns I make...

these two pics are one I tie for real still water situations...I use a piece of gray foam in beween the wing/body feather to help with floatation...its not so durable, but has ccounted for some weary big trout...I used some moose mane for the antennae...
