Parachute Caddis

Parachute Caddis

 Andy Slawson spins up a parachute caddis fly. This patterns floats flat on the surface like a real caddis giving it an edge over more traditional and heavily hackled caddis patterns. This one will skate easily when needed but can also ride through some heavy current and chop. A simple tie that is critical to your trout box anywhere you fish in the world.
