Fly Tying & Fishing: Mathew’s X Caddis…Great Fly

In keeping with the smallish fly theme, I tied up these X-Wing Caddis flies (green bodied/deer hair wing) on size 18 hooks. Simple to tie, I actually have had wonderful success with this pattern with green trailing shuck/green body and amber trailing shuck/tan body. The trailing shuck is sometimes called a ‘tail’. Consider it (the Zelon fibers) to be the still attached nymphal body that the Caddis is attempting to separate from. Don’t tie it in too short or thick. I use a single strand of Krystal Flash for the ribbing. Deer hair for the wing (some use Yearling Elk Hair).

Basic Black Caddis Patterns

Basic Black is an underutilized color for Caddis patterns. Whether the standard Elk Hair Caddis (L) or the X-Caddis (R), it is an excellent eye catching pattern for trout. It is, under low light conditions, a bit harder to see (for you).

X Caddis Progressions (Opal X Caddis)

Opal X Caddis ~ Dennis Potter

Opal X Caddis ~ Dennis Potter

No doubt the X Caddis is a performer. Just last week, I had some success with it v. the standard EHC. Might have been sizing too as my EHC was a size 14 and the XC was a size 16…not sure. Anyway, this little gem would be an interesting variation. Worth a tie and try to see if Mr. Potter’s advancement is due beyond the appealing visuals…very nice tie and photo… Dennis has some other nice patterns.
