That would definitely catch fish in a #28 on my river. Have never tried any caddis without a wing that is definitely food for thought.

When I lived back in PA, you could have a lot of fun with this fly in size 16-18, mid-May when the Black Sedges were dancing along the stream edges.

Hasn't fished as well for me out West.

CDC Elk Hair Caddis
Floats like a cork and looks real buggy on the water. I tie them in 12-16.

its called a "devil bug" (sometimes called a "cooper bug") and can be tied in an array of colors. the all black version I show is a great pattern for the black caddis on the big horn river in montana

you can try GOOGLE. there are videos on how to tie it but its really simple to tie

I like this one. I tie it with fibers from a crow feather rather than turkey; it's blacker.

Other choices include Starling & Herl soft hackle in #16 and 18, and black X-Caddis or Elk Hair Caddis in # 16 and 18. You could also try tying some of the XC and EHC with peacock herl or crow or turkey or pheasant fibers, rather than black dubbing.

Don't know if I will get around to it, but this year I have also been meaning to try tying up a few little black Rackelhanens. They are a popular caddis pattern in Europe but you don't hear that much about them in the US.
