Wow, 31 days in a row of posting a new fly pattern. Its been fun, hope you’ve enjoyed it.  I have.

Today, we feature 2 patterns for the White Miller Caddis, a hatch that is seen on the Firehole in the fall.  Previous posts about the White Miller include the Carpet Caddis and the TK-421.

Both of these patterns are from Blue Ribbon Flies, one dry and one not so dry.

    This has been a great series of posts and each day I have looked forward to logging in and seeing what the next fly will be. Great work!

    Thanks Dave!

    It was fun for me too. I’ll do more of the same, don’t know if I can keep a daily pace, but check back.
