My fly box has always been short on caddis flies, so I'm resolving that issue now. I purchased the book, CADDISFLIES by Gary LaFontaine which is loaded with information. I'm stocking up on nymph, pupa, emergers and dry versions. Finding patterns on you tube that I'm following. When tying I stick to flies that are quick and simple to tie versus ones that are more complicated and require a bigger investment of time. That's not because I don't feel capable, but feel that simplicity should be a prerequesite for a good fly imitation. Realistic looking flies (life like) don't necessarily catch more fish.
