Fly Days of August: Henry’s Fork Caddis

August 9th, 2009 · No Comments

This is a darker variation of the Harrop pattern, Henry’s Fork Caddis. Instead of an olive biot, this one uses a stripped peacock herl.

If you are not familiar with Rene’ Harrop’s patterns, he is a master fly tyer and the guy behind The TroutHunter on Henry’s Fork. In my opinion, his selection & quality of CDC feathers are the best.
