Fly Tying: Caddis Larva Patterns

Fly tying tutorials and patterns from

Simple, effective Caddis Larva patterns that are deadly.

I love flies that are simple to tie, but never fail to perform when trying to trick trout. Caddis Larva patterns fit that bill perfectly.

Caddis Larva patterns can be tied in all sorts of configurations, ranging from dead simple to ultra realistic. I tend to stay really simple with these patterns and they work well.

If you vary the color combinations, you’ll find something that will work well for you too. I’ve found that natural browns, olives and greens tend to produce well in my area. I almost always tie caddis larva patternsĀ in size 16, which seems to be the sweet spot, and I stick to scud or klinkhamer style hooks, such as the Daiichi 1120 or 1160.

Here are 3 patterns that you should certainly check out:
