Hot Spot Caddis 2.0

  • Time: Short      Difficulty: Easy      Season: Spring – Fall

Know an angler who has impaired vision? Having difficulty tracking your dry fly in swift current? The caddis is a must have in Maine between late May and September. We all love dry fly fishing, but there are times when it can be difficult to track your fly. You don’t want to miss a subtle sip, so add a hot spot! The low profile makes this fly swim right side up, so the fish never see the hot spot, it is just for the angler! A really great pattern that I find myself using more and more frequently. 


– Hook: Standard dry fly #16

– Thread: Uni-thread 6/0 light olive

– Hackle: Light grey, size 18

– Wing: Tan and orange deer hair
