Fitting the Pieces of Patterns……..

In the past, I have touched upon the Tied Down Caddis pattern here at SwittersB. Partly out of nostalgia and also because it was the only fly I had for my beginning fly fishing fifty + years ago. It was, as I have said, an exceptional pattern. 

Today, I came across an old pic I had taken of the pattern and it jumped out at me that the pattern, although of different materials, has much the same profile as the pattern I showed you yesterday by Endoman. I put together a small collage of Tied Down Caddis (there’s more of them online now then a few years ago…may I take a very small piece of credit for that) and inserted Endoman’s pattern. I think I need to revisit the Tied Down Caddis in earnest. I would personally now either dub the body fuzzy or wrap less hackle for a less dense profile.

TDC Caddis Col SwittersBNow granted the deer hair backing would trap less air than the Zelon/Antron shell back but maybe the legs and profile are equally or more important than the potential bubble shroud/air trapping pharate of the pupa?
