Metallic caddis
 
1 Attachment(s)
This pattern is similar to the Brassie, but the incorporation of a wire body plus a bead head makes the fly very dense for its size so it gets down in a hurry.

Hook: Scud, size 12-18 (here, a size 14)
Head: Bead head, size to match hook
Thread: Olive, 6/0
Abdomen: Fine wire (copper, nickel, etc.)
Thorax: A few turns of peacock herl

Have some Great lakes steelhead caddis patterns similar to these, bet these would work out here also.
