    Default PTs Pink Opal Clacka Caddis










    Found this variation of the Iris Caddis on Planettrout?s site; combines the goodness of Mathews, Weise and Potter in one tasty morsel. Never thought of using pink for the hydropsyche hatch (I?ll have to downsize to a #16) but pink flies have produced well on Montana streams, so I?ll give them a shot. My barred ginger cape is very weak - short quills, sparse barbs, but the color is good so I used it here (next time I?ll wrap a ginger and grizzly)

    Nice as always, Scott. I've been a clacka caddis fan for several years now. They're a killer for me during the Yellow Sally hatch. But I want to try the opal, too. Dennis Potter swears by it.
