High-Vis Caddis - New Zealand style / duo / trio
The High Viz Caddis is a new addition to the River Fly Box.
This pattern is very much based on Roman Moser's Balloon Caddis, and it is part of the fly box as a high-riding dry fly for fishing New Zealand style / duo. As it the balloon caddis wasn't obvious enough with its yellow, foam head, this incorporataes a a pink yarn sighter.
I am using elk for the wing, but deer hair is equally useful; There are full tying instructions here: High Vis Caddis.
