Goddard version of caddis tied with CDC. Why CDC? because on the slow and very slow running  rivers works better than other material. At least for me:)

I tie this fly  down to size #20 , not possible with deer hair. 

So here it is:



the step by step is here on my blog:)

Thanks for watching,

Nice fly! I will have to try it. I enjoy seeing your flies, and really like your tying style.

 In fact this sedge is probably the most easy  to tie dry Sedge. What you have to do is to twist the CDC barbs on the hook shank  and to trim to shape. It is so simple but so  effective on medium and slow waters. I had days and evenings  on rivers from Slovenia when other flies was useless. And this model was the most effective  by far.
