An innovative new method of tying a very durable and virtually indestructible caddis imitation. Invented by John Wilson in the 1980's on the Beaverkill River, New York, the Wilson calf caddis is easy to tie with no hackle and only several materials required. Extensively proven in the waters of Ontario and New York, this caddis pattern is new to you fly fishermen but an old reliable for me.
Calf hair is readily available and is used in this pattern to make the FULL wing in a unique style of tying by double lashing down and finishing a tapered head. The Wilson Caddis floats very well even in rough riffle water and may be tied in a variety of colours and sizes to match the naturals.
Your feedback and stories about fishing this fly in other countries are most welcome.
