The Story

Wire is used to build the body of this caddis fly nymph larva imitation. These types of caddis live in fast cold water which allows them to absorb oxygen through their skin. Fish this Shaggy Wire Caddis fly nymph in the riffles and swim it to the surface. These larva are very strong swimmers and are not generally found in slower pools.

Color: Green.

Size: 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Splendid Fall Fly Using this on the tail end of riffles on the Truckee River and it is picking up our normally picky Wild Rainbows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked the first time I tried it Went out a couple days after receiving this fly. Was trying a bunch of different ones and getting no results. Tied this one on and got a nice brookie. The next cast with it the wind took it into a tree and I wasn't able to get it out and lost it. Time to buy more
