    Fly Tiers Alert

    WE NEED A
    NON-CADDIS MOTH

    Imitate This

    .. We've been flooded with questions about what flies to use for the spruce moth invasion. The, {admittedly poor,} images above should give you an idea why the caddis imitations work so well. If you're creative maybe a better rendition could be had.
    .. Dead, dying, and down, is the way the moth is as it hits the water in the early morning hours. They fall all day and arrive in various states of death and disarray. Some flutter, some skitter, some just lay there. Eventually they become an amorphous bit of flotsam. Trout eat them all.
