Default Re: Yellow Caddis

I have good luck with a Yellow Sally version with a Red butt. You can use a yellow floss body and palmer the hackle like an EHC or tie them like a henryville caddis with a bubbed body and the hackle in frnt of the wing. I use bleached Elk for the wing, and light/medium ginger hackle. I like to tie them on 2X long dry fly hooks in 14 or 16. 1X hooks will work fine too. You might also tie em like a stimmi on Tiemco 200 hooks but I would be sure to tie in a short tail of elk hair to aid in bouyancy. Bounce, drift and then twitch these bad boys when the naturals are ovipositing eggs!
