Caddis are dominant aquatic insects in western states, so it's more than possible that fish will recognize Montana Fly Company's X-Caddis as a tasty morsel. This dry fly will be a regular in your arsenal from May to August and is sold in packs of six to keep you fully stocked for the next big caddis hatch you encounter.

- Q & A
Tough to Float
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I prefer the foam white-tipped emerger patterns as they are easier to see in low light conditions.
This pattern is a great imitation pattern as an emerger but is harder to see and has a tendency to sink in anything other than slow glassy pools. Consider a white-colored dressing so you can see the deer hair on the water.
Weary fish beware!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Emerging pattern for the early part of the caddis hatch. MFC makes durable and great flies.
