Great fly for still water, wherever there are caddis
Can be weighted to get deeper, I prefer the no-weight style fished with a sink tip and slow retrieve

Great looking fly!
Now THAT'S a fly I will have to try! Will tie up several for my late May pilgrimage to the Beaverkill. (Maybe a stop on the West Branch, too!) I normally fish dries, but when the dry action slacks off, will use it!
