The "BIG" Foam-Butt Caddis
With the rain putting dampers on the recent fishing both local and on the northern streams, all that is left to do is replace the hottest fly for my summer to date. Hopefully this rain will improve fishing through the remainder of the summer.
The "BFBC"...or the BIG Foam-Butt Caddis is tied in larger fashion has been the ticket for pulling both the largest gills and bass to the top, crossing over in popper fashion as well.
Here is the pattern:
(Tied same as the standard FBC)
Hook: #6 Gamakatsu Stinger
Thread: 6/0 Black
Tail/Abdomen: 2mm x 1/4" Black Fly Foam
