Thanks for all your response gang! While I do not rate the quality of my experience in terms of quantity hooked or landed I would bet most folks prefer catching to fishing!

To be honest catching trout on a size 16 griffiths gnat would make me an inglorious bastard. LOL

I do have a pet peave when it comes to fishing for trout and that is "bowling for browns" a New England term for fishing dries directly over trout by dangling them down river in the current.... the fly is skated like a yo-yo enticing a strike. Poor form!

Corbo.
May I suggest a tan X-Caddis in a 16 if you like to fish dries on the Holston. Deer Hair, tan Super Fine dubbing, and tan Z-lon.

below is a different color scheme I tied for a buddy from Maine for the North Country. Note, no palmared hackle. Very simple, very effective.

Hey; that looks yummy! Over the years up north I swallowed many caddis after dark that flw into my mouth.

Actually I tie many just like that with & without palmered hackle with the same sorta color shuck attached! Usually I use SLF fibers but some I do with a stiffer antron fiber like yours.

Nice looking fly!
