    Tying the Bighorn CDC Black Caddis

    Here's a great CDC caddis pattern that in the colors used here, works great on the Bighorn River from late July into September. Change the colors of the body and wing, and you can imitate any caddis you might come across on any river. Yes, I tied this one like the locals do, with 6/0 black thread, but do I use 6/0 olive Danville on the ones I tie for myself.

    love this fly- a black caddis is the only fly you need out there during the summer months. Also love how everybody just rows down nymphing and doesnt even fish to risers.

    I have heard this from a couple people now.....I will be fishing the risers in the riffles as I have tied at least 30 of these over the past few days......excited is putting it mildly!!!!

    It's amazing to me that so many people go all that way to fish the river and despite the caddis hatching all day long into dark and fish feeding on them, most people fish nymphs in the deeper runs and pools, that includes most of the guides. I'd guess it's an 80:20 ratio nymphing to dries. It sure does make it easy though to find open water to wade and fish dries!

    Was out there last August and that fly worked great. Yes, most dummies were bobber fishing the fast water. Small baetis pattern also worked good.
