Peeking Caddis - American Grannom

from 2.95

Before summer makes its transition into fall, hatches and other bugs dwindle in frequency and size. When this happens, you may be surprised to find stomachs full of cased caddis as the fish look at scavenging on what is available. Behavioral drift also occurs as the caddis seek to establish better feeding territory within the river channel. Either way, trout will respond favorably to a cased caddis imitation drifting amongst the rocks.

 

I often use one of these cased caddis as an anchor jig that is equally effective at drawing strikes than the trailing fly. I tie these with trailer hitches so that you can also use as an anchor fly on a multi-fly rig. Because late summer water flows are generally very clear, I use a raw tungsten bead on this pattern to keep things from being too flashy.
