  1. These have worked on the grannom hatch at home; it'll be interesting to see how they play out west. May make a few color adjustments

    Jackd and McNasty like this.
  2. Those look fairly small. What size are the hooks?

    A mix of Dai Riki 320 and 305 in #14.

  4. Okay. They all look pretty good to me.
     
  5. Me too. Is it just me or am I the only one getting hungry?
     
  6. very nice scott, i have some CDC and elk already tied, gonna have to try some of those iris and X2's!
     
  7. CDC goodness. Nice patterns.
     
  8. Nice ties! I like those dark bodies for Mother's Day caddis. I'm going to use black CDC for the CDC and Elk patterns, though a dark X-caddis can't be beat.

    Anybody tie a mating caddis pattern (Pat Lat, where are you)? I hit the hatch perfectly on the Yellowstone a few years back and every fly on shore was happily joined. On windy days, I suspect some would be blown onto the water?

    For those wanting to add a hot spot, here is the egg color.
