Wet fly pattern…

A simple, little wet fly pattern, the Roxy Rainbow. Normally, I have used this as a stillwater emerger pattern.

    Quite a few years ago Tim Paxton sent me some of the multi-colored body material for the Roxy Rainbow. Tim invented the fly- Roxy is his wife. Along with the material he sent a copy of an emerging caddis originated by Charles Brooks of West Yellowstone. It is basically the Roxy without a tail,with the strands of the body material brought back and trimmed as a wing. Charlie added an aftershaft thorax and folded partridge hackle. I just tied them with a dubbed hare’s ear thorax. Tie these on heavy sproats. Voila- The Rainbow Caddis- a great fish catcher.
    There is something special about that silver, rose, gold and blue body material!

      Wonderful information. My son and I were first intro’d to the pattern on Oregon’s East Lake by a guide (gosh name escapes me now). Since then we have used different variations, but we have fond memories of that little gem. Thank you for commenting with the history of the pattern!! 🙂

    I guess you never will reveal the location 🙂 A place with no name is brilliant!
