    Default Captain Morgans caddis

    Got these tried out this morning on our lake, by my good friend who was fishing there.
    Within 2 minutes he hooked a 7lb fish one one unfortunatly i did not have the camera to prove it.
    but he rang this afternoon to say he lost three flies with smash takes gave 5 away to his customers and only had one left.
    Now to tie up a few dozen for him.

    Laurie: Awesome looking Caddis pattern. Looks like it works a little too good, maybe your customer needs to go up a size on tippet with those violent strikes!
