Common Net Spinner (Caddis Nymph)

Tan & Brown Variant

Seeing as folks who know stuff have said that the Caddis Fly is the ‘”most important” bug in America…Gary LaFontaine.

I figured I’d spend some time looking at pictures and playing around to come up with my own versions of the different life stages.

I used the picture on page 161 of Thomas AMes, Jr.’s book named ‘Hatch Guide for New England Streams’–my favorite of its type.

  1. Nice Fly. Try it with a light brown body and a dark head in size 16

    • Yup–I’ll be tying up some brown, tan and cinnamon versions in various sizes. A few bead heads as well.
