Depth Charge Caddis

Recommended Posts

When the grayling are hiding deep and refusing to budge you have to present your fly to their level. This cased caddis imitation will do the trick.

The tie:

#10 Jig hook

4.6mm Tungsten bead

a layer of flat lead

green UNI Neon thread for the peeping head

a turn of Partridge hackle

Cheers!

what brand of jig hook are you using?

 

 

I am using hook from Mr. Skalka, but it is a pretty local brand, doubt it will be available in the States. Very good jig hooks are Dohiku from Slovakia, I think Mr. Kevin Compton distributes them on your side of Atlantic.

I am glad you are doing well, FlySlinger! I will surely have a look at your deer hair project, though I am afraid I don't do much of warm water fishing myself (no bass over here, just carp, carp, carp and I hate that fish!)

 

Cheers!

I got a buddy that is in the czech republic and sent him an email. He emailed me back and got me some Mr. Skalka hooks!! Woohooo!!! He got me 200 in several sizes and some barbless scud hooks and some barbless 2xl nymph hooks. He lives in Plzen. Thanks for the tip!
