Created by Ralph Cutter this is a great option when fish get tired of seeing the good old standby Elk Hair Caddis. Properly named (EC for emergent/cripple) this fly is intended to imitate a caddis that is struggling to break the surface film on the water during its emergence. The propped up elk hair wing with hackle wrapped around it in a post method gives a really unique and life like look. This method also allows the elk hair and hackle to ride above the surface film while the main body of the fly can slip beneath. Making it a perfect imitation for when the caddis emergence is just breaking out of the water.

With July and August come the Trico hatches triggering the slow repetitive subtle rises from trout. It may seem as though they are rising to nothing but they can see these tiny insects perfectly. Because of the tiny size this can be a tough fly to fish. Try fishing it behind a small indicator like the Palsa Pinch On or trailing another larger dry like the Goddard Caddis we featured last week.

With the popularity of fly fishing exploding over the past 30 years I have explored different ways to avoid the crowds. Since a large portion of the crowds consists of what I call “road anglers,” I have discovered a simple way to distance myself from them in order to experience solitude and space.

Need a caddis fly that floats nice and high? Look no further than the Goddard Caddis. This dry fly floats like a cork! Created by two English fly tiers and fishers John Goddard and Clive Henry in the early ’60’s this fly is a must have in. With a full body of spun / flared elk hair it is a great pattern to throw in faster moving water or if you need to give some twitchy action to encourage strikes but don’t want to continually sink/cure your fly. I like to fish it solo or along with a smaller trailing dry fly behind it.

When simplicity and versatility meet, here comes the Renegade. This fly is a classic Fore and Aft style fly, and a favorite of the famous Ernest Hemingway, and for good reason. Created by Taylor “Beartracks” Williams in the late ’20s this fly is a go to attractor pattern. It can be tied and fished in a wide range of sizes to meet your fishing needs. Don’t get too caught up in what this fly is imitating and enjoy the takes!
My fly rod is a metronome; its steady beat keeps the rush of the world at bay. If that beat is too fast, it pulls me out of the moment, sucking away my focus with the current. There is a rhythm to everything, and fiberglass rods tick at just the right speed. Continue reading “Slow Down With Fiberglass Fly Rods”
