Sample text

Ultra Zugs tied in peacock, Hare's Ear, or olive colors cover most of the species whose larvae don't build cases: free-living (Rhyacophlia) and netspinning (Hydropsyche and Cheumatopsyche) caddis. I like to fish caddisfly larvae slightly larger than the adults the naturals will eventually become—tie your flies on sizes 12 to 16 hooks and you'll be set for most of the Rocky Mountain caddisfly larvae. All caddisflies change into a pupal form prior to emerging. As they prepare for the transition from pupae to adult, they are active and drift in the river's current.

While seining nymphs on lower Flat Creek, I noticed most of the small stonefly nymphs had brown sides with a pronounced yellow racing-stripe down the back. With Dan Abrams's help, I figured out they were yellow Sally nymphs. I knew what the adults looked like; now I had an exact visual image of the nymph to imitate. I believe an important aspect of imitation is to look at simple but obvious features—the defined vertical line seemed worthy of imitation. I first tied a Pheasant Tail with a strand of yellow floss down the back, but I found out the color of the floss changed too much when wet.

Soft-hackles are also good choices. The trick to swinging flies is to mend up- or downstream so that your fly moves slightly quicker than the current, with a little kick at the end of the drift. There is more of an art to this than many would think. As a caddisfly reaches the water's surface, some pupae get caught in the surface tension. The Everything Emerger imitates this stage well and can be tied in shades that match the naturals. Bodies of tan, olive, and peacock predominate. Adult caddisflies fall into two categories: flush on the water and fluttering.
