CDC is an amazing natural material for tying flies. Take a good old Pheasant tail, put it on a jig style hook and add some CDC and you have a very fishable fly! This pattern is a must for any fly angler. A very forgiving fly that gives good reason that a soft hackle pheasant tail is Patagonia’s founder Yvon Chouinard favorite fly (although I believe he favors the partridge soft hackle version). Fish it in dead drift style or swing it for deadly presentations and you will be very pleased!

For me thinking about what I was going to use to tie a fly to imitate the cased caddis was fairly daunting. A bug that covers itself in natural materials like rocks and sticks from the bottom of the river creating a natural camo seemed very difficult to imitate most of the time using dubbing. That is until I was turned on to this pattern. The look created by burning the root beer cactus chenille is perfect! You can burn the material slightly more or less to get some different colors/shades to match your specific river bottom. This is a great point fly when nymph fishing.

The X Caddis is a wonderfully simple pattern created by Craig Matthews. This fly is a great option when fishing the onset of a caddis hatch as it is intended to imitate a caddis that has broken free of its shuck with a full wing but still has the remains stuck to its body. If your classic Elk Hair isn’t working just yet this fly is probably the ticket.
