Another great pattern from Craig Matthew’s BLUE RIBBON FLIES…
These will work on a majority of Sierra waters. I like this fly!!!
Nick’s SoftHackle Caddis Emerger
Celebrate Independence from All Other Flies
We challenge you to a one fly contest. Bring Nick’s Soft Hackle Caddis Emerger (maybe a couple, but no other patterns) with you the next time you fish a likely spot, like any of the rivers around West Yellowstone. We will wager that you will catch fish and plenty of them on nothing but this simple, effective pattern.
This productive soft hackle has earned a permanent place in our fly boxes. Tied by our senior guide Nick Nicklas, this English styled pattern incorporates a collar of natural partridge and flash with a natural fur body, creating the perfect classic caddis emerger.
