Since the last swap went so smoothly, I thought I would see if anyone has interest in doing a Caddis swap? I was thinking of any stage of caddis pattern you would like to tie. Whether it be Nymph to dry, you make the choice. Any interest?

I'm sure I could teach myself a simple pattern to tie up.

That is what I am wanting to do. I haven't tied any caddis yet and I wanted to so this will help force me to learn how to tie them.

What do you guys think, would having a deadline of Fri. Nov. 16 be ok?

I think I am going to sign up for a tan caddis.

When picking your pattern to tie, you might want to get pretty specific to avoid 4 guys tying the same patter or more importantly someone not tying a type of pattern because someone just said "tan caddis".

For example...tan caddis...tent wing, elk hair, goddard, parachute? Which one. See what I mean? Just trying to help. I may get in on this one as well since I love tying and fishing caddis. You should make sure some of the beginners know that they might want to include sedge, grannom and alderfly patterns as well. Do some googling and pick a good one!

Sounds like you might want to read a little about Caddis as well.

Thanks so much for clarifying that for us Tom!!!! I really appreciate it! You can tell I am new at some of this stuff.

So to clarify mine, I will be doing a Tan Elk Hair Caddis. I need to get some experience tying with elk hair.

Let me know what specific pattern you decide to tie guys.

Thanks

Good choice...that is the fly my son caught his first trout with...once you get good at it you can just tie in different sizes and colors and be almost totally covered for Caddis hatches since it fishes as well wet as it does dry. And you can tie a whole bunch in a relatively short period of time.

I'm gonna find something totally new for this. I'll get back to you with a pattern sooner or later. Need to do some searching, and perhaps spend some time at the vice.
