This month's fly is dry flies size 16 or bigger. Classic dries were on 10's and 12's so let's go with that concept. Doesn't have to be a named classic but there are some fairly east ties amongst them and the larger size hooks are definitely easier than the 24's and 26's with dubbing and wings.

Just finishing up a dozen X-caddis in size #14. Craig Matthews out in 'West came up with this crippled caddis pattern and it is a GREAT fishing fly whenever caddis are about.

Standard dry fly hook

Shuck:Amber Zelon

Body: Tan Superfine dubbing

Underwing: dun cdc fibers

Wing: deer hair


They will be on the way tomorrow.
