Ready for Caddis?

As we welcome spring dry fly season, now’s a perfect time for a deep dive into caddisflies. The Orvis podcasts by  Tom Rosenbauer are excellent information sources and can help you pass the time during your daily commutes.

First, tune into Tom’s “Ten Tips for Fishing Caddisflies” here:


Next, if you’d like to swim deeper, then listen to a recent podcast, “the life cycle of caddisflies,” with expert Thomas Ames:


Knowing what insect and life stage to tie on, and how to fish it, will boost your success over the next 2-3 months.  Caddisflies bring us great seasonal action, so do a little homework on these bugs now. Your investment of time will pay off handsomely when you step into the stream next time and notice caddisflies fluttering about!

Which caddisflies?  Save and use your local hatch charts!  Good luck.
