This weeks fly tying video comes to us from Chris Michels of Creek Addict who shows us how to tie a Czech style caddis nymph imitation. This fly pattern is heavily weighted with lead tape and a tungsten bead to help it get down deep quickly and makes an excellent anchor fly when used in a cast of flies and fished on Czech nymphing rig.
As you know, I like flies tied by fly fishing guides because they are usually quick to tie, very durable, and highly effective and Chris’s flies fit this bill. Chris provides fly fishing guide services on New Jersey’s best trout streams and his flies help ensure happy clients. They will work for you too.
In the coming week we will show you how to the catch more fish with Czech style nymphs like the Creek Addict Caddis as we continue with our Czech Nymphing series.
Have a nice weekend!
