Number 6 – the UH Sedge hog
A sedge hog is a traditional brittish (Irish?) pattern that uses sections of deer hair on the top of the shank to create a thick non sinkable caddis profile. On my version I wind CDC in a dubbing loop between each section of deer hair to create a more living pattern and to add even more boyance.
Number 7 – The X caddis
This pattern is made originally by Craig Matthews, and it is a good example of a minimalistic pattern that works really well! Imitating an emerging or stillborn caddis I have found it works best in size 16 i these colors. I’ve not nearly fished this one enough, so this comming season I am stocking up with more of these in my box!
