Hi all, and I hope this "break" in the weather (we're going to be above freezing today) means fishing is close!

Here's a video I just made featuring the Splitsville Caddis, a pattern created by Jonny King (of NY). He took Bob Quigley's method of the Hackle Stacker and applied it to a deer hair caddis, creating an extremely buggy looking fly with a strong delta profile.

This is a newer pattern, and was just featured in the most recent issue of "Fly Fisherman." It's a really fun fly to tie, plus from what Jonny has told me (and a few guys that knew about this fly earlier on the Upper Delaware system), this is a fly that has had success on finicky trout.

Enjoy,

TC

Interesting tie. Looks like it would float vey well. Nice profile.

That fly will wreck them on the D. That gives me 7 different versions of an apple caddis pattern. How many is too many? LOL

Thanks for the comments; Jonny created a good one here! I'd like to know your other six patterns, Krayfish!

2 Harrops patterns, Borstrem (spelling) spent caddis, LaFontaine sparkle pupa, deer hair caddis, egg laying caddis w/cdc wing and x caddis. Carry tan, charcoal, olive and apple green in #14 & #16. By carrying all of those, you insure that the only thing they'll eat is a rusty spinner. LMAO

Here's a similar pattern that caught my eye

For starters, you're so right about carrying so many patterns, and then having the fish eat something else!

The other video is a keeper. Davie does a great job, and creates a delta wing there, too. Thanks for sharing the video.

This is a amazing pattern on the Delaware. I can't wait to try it on the local streams this year

Interesting. I've been meaning to try a "hackle stacker" pattern for a while now. Seems like it would give a nice low profile. Hadn't thought about using it to tie a caddis pattern though. I'll have to try this. Really clever way to make a split wing.
