Tying the Summer Caddis

Summer Caddis



The Summer Caddis was named as it copies a group of mid-summer caddis that hatch along many of Pennsylvania's waters. Once the summer heats up these larger lumbering caddis appear and are a daily staple for surface feeding. This pattern is a steady producer and one of my favorite prospecting patterns when no real surface activity is apparent.
