The Uncased Caddis nymph is a stellar fly pattern for those sunny days. It works best in clear water and for getting down to the deeper water columns, as it has a bead head.
Barbless hooks are becoming more and more popular because they do not hurt the fish as bad as barbed hooks will.
These flashy Uncased Caddis are perfect for getting the fishes attention. Use on the very bottom or in the middle of a multi-hook nymphing setup. This fly pattern works well for catching brown trout, rainbow trout, cutthroat, walleye, smallmouth bass, and panfish.
