Default Wha? What the heck? Neversink caddis?

Never heard of such a thing! Sounds righteous and right up my alley.
Someone please expand on the "neversink" caddis.
ManOman! Tennis ball yellow at dusk. Whoa!

My favorite dry fly for the park 6+ months of the year.

Just a caddis dry fly with some foam to make it float better. Easy to see for the beginner

They are very effective in May on Little River. Btw, they should be named "Rarely Sink Caddis"

Thank you.
Another question please: What are the pros and cons of the green weenie vs green inchworm?
I had huge success with green inchworm when I started using them, oh, about 15 years ago. However for the past several years it seems the trout just don't charge it like they used to; even the BH ones.

I believe the wiggle of the tail of the green weenie might be the only difference I could think of

Daniel at LRO turned me onto these several years ago. They are not too hard to tie, but getting expensive because of the hackles going in the girls hair now! HA..

The fish ate them up on the Big Wood river outside of Ketchum ID three years ago, so they are great everywhere.

PS..if your looking for something easier to tie, try the X-caddis which is next to these Neversinks. Quick, simple, float great, always upright, and in a pinch can fake a trout out in a mayfly hatch as well.

Thanks Flats.
Good looking flies you have there. If I was a trout I would munch on all of them with careless abandon(if the presentation was attractive of course).

While this pattern is effective and stays afloat much easier than its non-foam brethren, the name "neversink" was not conceived for its flotation properties. The original name comes from a caddis pattern first developed in the late 1800's for fishing the Neversink River in NY, basically the origin of dry fly fishing. As a NY native, I just wanted to throw that out there...

Tight Lines,

Gonna try the X Caddis too...
