Goddard Caddis

Goddard Caddis: Another simplified pattern (antennae are omitted). This floats for a long time & provides a great silhouette. The flotation comes from the caribou, so hackle quality isn't critical. This fly has fooled some large trout in the Deschutes & Snake Rivers. I am currently experimenting with an all-black version; haven't had time to fish it but will post reports if it proves successful.
hook: #12-16 standard dry fly
thread: tan or brown
body: natural caribou hair spun & clipped into tent-like adult caddis shape
hackle: a few turns of brown hackle
