With a name like Holy Grail Caddis this fly out the gates better work right? Does it ever!! Utilizing go to natural materials, Partridge, Pheasant tail and Hare’s ear and offering just enough flash with the tinsel ribbing this fly has it all. I love fishing this fly in the summer months as a dropper below a large Elk Hair Caddis, Puterbaugh’s Caddis or any other buoyant caddis dry fly. It works great when the you have an early caddis emergence with the majority of the bugs making their way up the water column or stuck under the surface tension of the water. This a must have summer fly in my box
