Montana Caddis

I spoke to my brother Paul today and he told me he has his trip booked to Montana to fish with Paul Jr..

Man would I like to join them! I'll be returning from NJ and at least I'm supposed to fish the Ken Lockwood gorge while I'm up there.

Paul Jr. has been fishing and requested some flies: Adams Parachute, Pale Morning Duns (PMD), and Elk hair Caddis. I tied three types of caddis this afternoon to send along with Paul.


Another fine mess

The first ones are Light Caddis tied with a yellow body, tan elk hair tail & wing and light ginger hackle. I tied them on a #12 Mustad dry fly hook.

Are you sure you're not using nose hairs to tie these flies?
