This is a little brighter green than the #16 X-Caddis tied with Med Olive Fine and Dry it will be hanging behind.

In case no one has offered you this advice, what I will say as you fish that duo of flies
is: make sure you keep a good grip on your rod! Looking forward to some pictures.

This worked a little for me last week on the Middle Deschutes when there were only sporadic rises. But it was upstaged both times by the X-Caddis or my Mother's Day Caddis Egg Laying dry fly. ;)

That is an elegant tie, Rodakill.

I need to get into the MD hatch if it's still on when I get home.

DUBBN,
This was tied for another life stage of this bug after reading this on http://www.troutnut.com/hatch/1751/Cadd ... s-Grannoms ...

"Note that this species changes color dramatically after it emerges, and imitations of egg-laying adults should be a different color from imitations of emergers. Emergers have pale blonde, almost off-white wings and bright green bodies, while the egg-laying adults have light brownish gray wings and medium green bodies."

While exploring the water to see which of the 3 flies is working best, this may be on point...

on top may be my green X-Caddis or this #14 MD Egg Laying Caddis I developed for my old home waters on Powder River...

Bill,
These are awesome MD caddis (other caddis too!) patterns! Every one of them looks great! The olive dubbing you have used looks wonderful! Next to orange (October), olive is my favorite! You do great work friend!
