Fly of the Week: Andrew’s Skagit River Caddis
Skagit River Rainbow trout are beautiful, wild and acrobatic. The Skagit river is full of caddis which is a great food source for these wild trout. Fishing caddis flies is a ton of fun whether as a nymph (wet fly) or adult (dry fly), the rainbows love to smash them!
My Skagit River Caddis pattern has been well tested and these beautiful trout find it irresistible!
