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.
Who else out there is ready to throw dry flies! The Parachute Madam X is one that I love to get out on the water when I have the chance. PMX for short, this fly is a variation of the classic Madam X. The PMX has an added Parachute post with the hackle wrapped around it in the same method of a Parachute Adams, which helps with both visibility and buoyancy. This is a great pattern to utilize when there are lots of summer bugs out and about whether it’s large stoneflies or hoppers. There’s nothing like getting a big trout to look up at a large dry fly!
