Not many dry fly patterns can be tied in three minutes, but heres one of them. The Elk & Hackle caddis. A quick adult skating caddis, that is an easy tie, but don’t be fooled, it’s also a very effective attractor.
A nifty para-weld caddis with a mottled turkey wing and a buggy hares ear abdomen and thorax. You can make the wing a little more robust by giving it a thin coat of UV resin.
Rubber grub grub, three bugs in a tub. A super quick and easy grayling grub for fishing fast flowing pocket water with great effect.
The mother of all daddy’s. This larger than life foam bodied daddy long legs, is a great attractor that moves a whole load of water when pulled through the surface, and will float all day long. With a neat foam body technique.
