Egg laying caddis tied by Barry Ord Clarke

Egg laying caddis/sedge dry fly

When the egg layers are active your waders can be  a popular place to deposit the eggs! Its that time of year when an egg laying caddis is an essential addition to your fly box!

Heres an easy pattern that is relatively quick to tie and works well. You can fish this dry or with a sunken leader, pulling it under and letting it ‘POP’ up to the surface again.
