    Dave: I hadn't heard of that caddis pattern until you mentioned it, but it certainly looks like a killer pattern. I hope someone here knows how to tie it and is willing to share. I did a Google search and a Youtube search and didn't find any information. I'm going to order a couple from one of the on-line sites that carry it and then I will have a good idea how it is tied.

    It doesn't look all that complicated. I would think that once you had one in hand it would be an easy tie.

    About the only thing I can't identify is what is used for the abdomen.

    Nice looking pattern. I think the abdomen is ultrachenille burnt on the end. I'm thinking some sort of crystal hackle for the collar.

    I found a pic I could zoom in on; I think the abdomen is Diamond Braid or something like it with the end burnt. Also has a small bead under that Ice Dub they used for the collar...

    Those are great. Hope to find how to tie a few of those too.

    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 !!!
