The X-Caddis is one of our favorite Caddis patterns. It is especially effective in flat water, eddies and banks where selective trout are gobbling small Caddis. The pattern was originated by Craig Matthews of West Yellowstone fame and continues to prove itself wherever Caddis species are present.
One of the classics, the Elk Hair Caddis is a must for any Western Anglers fly box. Barrett demonstrates a couple of new twists using mono for the rib and Hareline Ice Dub for the body. This is a quick and easy tie for an extremely effective fly.
