Several caddis species lay their eggs by crawling down rocks to the river bottom, or by diving into water and swimming to the bottom. Either way, many female caddis end up drifting in the current and are taken by trout.
Tie this pattern sparse.
Abdomen and wing colors are chosen to match the natural insect, but keep in mind that caddis turn darker as they get ready to lay their eggs. The most popular body colors are dark brown, dark olive, and black.
