Lemire's Fall Caddis

Recommended Posts

This is a Harry Lemire pattern taken from Trey Combs Steelhead Fly Fishing. I can't help but like the bugginess. I don't know if the midwest steelheaders on this forum fish damp or waking flies much, but thought it would nevertheless be of interest.

FANTASTIC tye.......just beautiful.......specially on a Salmon hook. A bit surprised you didn't put antenna......not that it's at all nessessary.........next time you do one for a plate/shadow box, i bet you will, lol. That body shape is just tremendous.......i don't doubt you even have the rear end fatter than the front, just like a real caddis. Love to watch that fly tyed. Superb job. mark ;)

Looks nice. I had a big 'ol natural caddis land on my hand tonight. This is a pretty nice representation. But from Harry Lemire, would you expect less?

 

Busgsy-nicely tied.

Thanks everyone. Flies like this are fun to tie...they don't need to look "perfect" (whatever that is), just balanced.

 

So, I'm still unsure...do any of you GL steelheaders get surface action? :dunno:
