Caddis Life Cycle Swap
Here's an opportunity for beginning, intermediate, and advanced tyers to get in on, with a caddis life cycle swap. It's a good way for folks that may be a bit new to this to get a sense of what types of flies are used to imitate different stages of the life cycle of the stuff that trout feed on, and to recognize different stages in on the stream.

Due date March 1 2010.

For beginning tyers, if you want some suggestions for easier to tie patterns, send me a PM.

There will be a a couple of slots for folks that want to tie up some larva, pupa or adult caddis patterns:
