The SWC was tied last season to test against the Benton Caddis, as an alternative to those bright bluebird days, clear water and skittish fish. I wanted another option to provide a distinct footprint, with attributes that would lend itself to being stripped under when the situations calls for a diving caddis. It did exceptionally well on 2 trips equaling one full day of fishing in both aspects. Hope to give it more time on the water this season. If you like it, give it a try. And by all means, let me know what you think,
