New Caddis Dry Fly

After field testing my new foam caddis dry fly I am very impressed with its durability and its ability to skitter up and across swift current.  My fly tying room is filled with creations that I will probably never tie again; they either aren't an improvement on a current fly I already offer to my customers or I haven't personally caught enough trout on them to feel confident putting then in my online shop.  This caddis exceeded my expectations, so I quickly tied a couple dozen to share with my friends and clients and to sell at the local fly shop.  Everyone that has used the fly has been satisfied and they like its ability to get tumbled by whitewater and then pop back up to the surface!

Ausable Update


The River has been fishing fantastic.  I have been to busy fishing and tying Humpies and Bombers to update my Blog for the past few weeks.  During this warm weather be sure to hit the water early take a nice long lunch during the hottest time of day then fish until dark or after!  Remember to play and net the fish as fast as possible, handle them as little as you can and release them quickly.   If you haven't been fishing the river here are a few pictures of what you have been missing.
