Presentation Tips: This caddis may not look like a caddis for you, bur from the trouts point of view it looks just like a caddis fly or a caddis pupa.
This is one of Norwegian flyfishers most used caddis fly, and it is amazing.
The guy behind this fly is Gunnar Bingen and the fly came to life in my favorite river Rena in Norway. I have always lots of "Dyret"(the animal) in my box.
This fly is ment to be fished with by making it move quite fast, but dead drift also can work very well
