Caddis fly project 2013 – #8 & 9

I’ve been tying more than I’ve had time to put up here. But I am gonna try and catch up with a post a day here. For number 8 and 9 I’ve chosen two patterns that I haven’t fished that much myself but both are regarded as top caddis patterns by the ones who fish them more than I’ve done.

Number 8 CDC bubble caddis
This is a pattern that comes from fly tying legend Oliver Edwards and his Masterclass DVD’s. What I’ve done with it is that I’ve used an additional CDC feather and also when I fold the feathers to create the bubble is that I keep them at different lenght to create a body in sections like this.

Number 9 – Brun’s caddis
A great pattern for caddis in size 16-18. From Norweigian André Brun this is a fly that has a tail and a wing from poly yarn. The body hackle is clipped on the underside which makes the fly sit low in the water film.
