The New Fly Fishing pattern / Caddis hatches


The New Electric Caddis Pupa



This is a fairly new pattern I came up with using the Ultrawire - Stretch Tubing combo, to give the fly a translucent effect. Ssizes and Colors can be changed to imitate various Caddis hatches here in North US.


This fairly realistic Caddis hatches - pattern plays upon the translucent characteristics of an emerging Grannom Caddis Pupa's color and abdomen, which is bright Green/Chartreuse when under water. It's an easy pattern to tie and very durable.

Way's to fish this fly are during a full blown Caddis hatch, as a dropper , as a searching pattern in a tandem nymph rig and use on the swing to imitate an emerging insect.


Directions and Materials


tying thread, which is covered with the wire/tubing combo Thorax - Natural Tan Dubbing or Tan Ice Dub.


Wing Bud- Black Raffia unfolded and burned with a Caddis wing burner. Antenna - Two fibers of Lemon Wood Duck or imitation Wood Duck Color combos can be changed to imitate Caddis that are prevalent on a particular stream or insects that are hatching at a certain time of the year.

How to Tie: (seven step by step Detailed instructions)


Step One: Insert Small Hot Chartreuse Ultrawire inside of Chartreuse Micro Stretch Tubing.


Step Two: Attach tying thread just behind the eye and cover shank to about 1/3 around hook bend and return thread a little less than 1/8 of an inch from the eye.


Step Three: Attach tubing/wire combo at the point you stopped your thread in step two and cover completely, return your tying thread to the point just behind the eye and tie off. Tubing & wire combo should be at the farthest point to the rear of the hook which has been covered with thread.


Step Four: Take your tubing/wire combo and pull as tight as you can so the tubing constricts around the wire and wrap forward. At the midway point relax the tension you put on the tubing/wire combo midway up the bend of the hook. Doing this will give the abdomen a tapered look and make three or four more wraps and pull tight again until you reach the thread tie-off point and lash down the tubing/wire combo, cut off the excess material at that point.


Step Five: Unfold some Black Raffia and take your Caddis Wing Burner and make two wing buds. Attach one on the near side of the fly and another at the far side. The position should be at the tie off point in step four.


Step Six: Dub your thorax so the wing buds stick out and dub forward to where you want to ti.


Step Seven: Add two Wood Duck Fibers for your Antenna pointing towards the rear. Whip finish. Then color the Chartreuse head thread with a Brown Sharpie or similar permanent marker.



Fly Tying & fishing School

factors and valuable information


Fly fishing is an amazing sport - it is a challenge. Fly fishing is a big sport! Step outside your comfort area and enjoy fishing all of the possibilities that lie within.

On a good day, nothing is as satisfying as walking up to the river mid successfully examining the clues Nature has laid out. The riddle is solved and you can identify/mimic what the primary food source is, this is largely the factor that determines style of fly fishing and gear.


All of the accepted techniques in fly fishing work under the right set of circumstances and if these fly fishing techniques did not work, they would have not been accepted in to the lexicon of fly fishing.


Technique and fly Fishing Gear


When dealing specifically with cold water species in the northeast, you may employ a huge array of gear and techniques for fly fishing. A fly angler can throw streamers, swing braces of wets tight-line and indicator nymph tigs, , use a dry dropper, launch huge top water flies the size of cats, skate Stoneflies & Caddis, and thistle down dries upstream style as well as downstream Catskill style.

Gear choices are as varied as the techniques, sometimes it is a mix of two or three techniques. You may use fly rods as light as a 7 ft medium slow 3 wt to a fast action 9'6" 5 wt, all the way up to 14' spey rods. Employ fishing gear that is appropriate for the size of the river you are fishing and the type/size flies you are casting. more


Strike indicators


Most fly anglers will either say they will not use strike indicators or love them, rather than approaching the water using a logical tool for the right job. Strike indicators are best suited for moderate and slower currents where the water is 4,5 or more feet deep. This makes them indispensable on our east coast freestone streams and rivers in the winter because this is the exact type of water that the fish hold in when the water is closer to the freezing point in the late fall, and winter.

Strike indicators don't fit every situation. When using an indicator, it takes several seconds for the weight to grab the bottom and the slack between the indicator and weight to pull tight. If you are trying to use this rig in fast water, it is too far downstream river from you before this happens, rendering it less effective for a good hook set. When the water is above the 50 degree mark, fish are more likely to hold in faster currents. In this scenario you will see better results using a tight line approach coupled with a tuck cast,the weighted flies or split-shot and flies to the bottom much faster. You should use the most effective technique to address each situation. There are many different types of water and just as many different food sources exhibiting many behaviors.


Autumn trout fly fishing




At this time of year water temperatures within the steelhead's optimum range can be readily found. Fish that have been unmolested by other anglers will chase and move up to river intercept a fly. There is usually no need to scrape the fly along the river's floor. Aggressive strikes are the norm. Some are the notable type that keep you awake at night and are permanently burned into memory.



Autumn is also a good time to explore. The only thing nearly as good as fishing a great piece of steelhead water is hiking along its banks. With prime temperatures and steelhead on the move, fish can be found almost anywhere in the river. With good techniques and innovative fly lines, an astute angler can successfully swing a fly in a wide range of water, including small pockets and runs well away from the popular pools. This is an effective way to beat the pressure on some rivers.




Flies run the gambit. For prospecting big water its not a bad idea to use big flies. Marabou, Arctic fox rabbit strip, and long, flowing hackles with just a touch of flash are the key ingredients for Favorite Flies .


Color combinations


Black and purple is a hard color combination to beat. For low water conditions smaller, sparse flies tied in olives, tans and browns seem to coax reluctant fish better than oversized patterns.


Waters rich with aquatic life may require flies to mimic specific food sources. Streamers tied to represent smelt, alewife and sculpins can be just the ticket on some rives. You can use tube fly designs for their versatility and overall effectiveness in hooking and landing fish.


Most of development flies has occurred during the fall months. This has not always been easy, but the aggressive take and exciting battle of a fresh fall steelhead have consistently drawn to steelhead rivers.


While the runs on some of the rivers close to home will be in high gear by mid to late September, the runs on other rivers in the Great Lakes region may not find full stride until late fall. But water temperatures on rivers fed by a reservoir or a lake will maintain optimum range after the snow begins to fly by late November and early December. The weeks after Thanksgiving can be a great time to find solitude, as many anglers have had their fill or have moved on to other pursuits.




fly Tube Forrest Klott


Fly Tutorial:how to tie


Cut a length of 3mm and 1.8mm Euro Tubing. Cut the front end of the 3mm tube at an angle, and on the 1.8mm cut the rear end of the tube straight and melt a small shoulder with your lighter. Push the 1.8mm tube into the 3mm tube about half the length of the larger tube, adding a brush of super glue or Zap-a-Gap to make your fly even more durable Start your thread and wrap over the joint of the two sizes of tubing. Tie in a section of medium Estaz or Crystal chenille at the rear end of the joint. This will create a base to help prop the wing up and create a wider profile in the water. Wrap three or four turns of Estaz to create a small to medium sized ball that completely covers the joint of the tubing. Tie in a section of Polar Chenille. Make three or four wraps of Polar Chenille, this will add contrasting flash and further support for the wing. Tie in a medium sized clump of Arctic Fox for the first wing extending maybe a 1/4 of an inch past the end of the tube. Add a few strands of Rainbow Holographic Flashabou to the top and sides of the wing. Tie in a Schlappen feather and wrap the first collar. You may fold the hackle before wrapping, but that is up to your personal preference. Add a second, more sparse clump of Arctic Fox to form the second wing, and slightly longer than the first wing. Add another few strands of Flashabou, this time using Pink Holographic. Tie in on top and to the sides of the wing. Tie in a Hot Pink Schlappen feather and wrap the second collar. Add Jungle Cock eyes if desired. To finish the fly, just brush a bit of super glue or Zap-a-Gap onto your thread, make a few wraps of thread, let it dry for a couple of seconds or use a whip finish and trim the thread close to the head. Add a Tube Cone, leaving about 1/8 of an inch of tubing at the front of the cone and melt the tube back to complete the fly.


Wet Flies


Some years ago, the only methods were wet-fly and dry-fly fishing until then had been river based and adapting to stillwaters. If you want to learn more about Stillwater methods you can become an avid reader of nymph-fishing tactics by articles and books written on this fly fishing subject. One of the most influential book "My Way With Trout"- a book which thoroughly explored the subtleties of fishing nymphs. Fly Patterns such as the Montana Nymph, Stick Fly and Hare's Ear were catching lots of trout. Then Cat's Whiskers, Dog Nobblers and Tin Heads became all the flies fashion.


Stilwater wet flies


In Fact there are those who will try to convince you that traditional wet-fly fishing no longer works on stocked stillwaters, but don't believe a word of it. When it came to fishing on stillwaters, one extensive collection of traditional wet-flies may be very useful.

Dry Flies


Once the trout reached the turbulent waters under the river, they would submerge and, minutes later, reappear downstream to start the process all over again.

Experienced anglers carry no more than a dozen dry-fly patterns, and these would suffice. Any more fly patterns would have been deemed unnecessary.


This was not an attempt by the anglers to keep things simple but a reflection ot the incredible stock of trout the river held, all competing with one another to reach the next meal.


The key to success, then as now, is identifying the hatch and adapting the fly and method accordingly. The number of dry-fly patterns used on the Suir today is far too extensive. Some are specific to the Suir, while many of the others are internationally-recognised.


Eight favourite dry flies


The Greenwell's Glory, Ginger Quill, Sherry Spinner, Yellow Spider Olive, Red Quill, Badger Grey, Badger Quill, and the Blue Winged.


The Greenwell's Glory fly | Red Quill fly


These eight flies are versatile enough to cover most of your needs for daytime and early-evening fishing, and you can use special patterns for late evening dry-fly fishing.

The Cahir waters do not enjoy a significant hatch of mayfly, which is why I have not included any mayfly patterns. You will have to travel further upstream to the Cam is and Golden waters to encounter a good mayfly hatch. The usual selection of small Wulffs and up-winged dry-flies, along with some emergers and nymphs, will normally work here.




For fly fishing the River, the lighter the tackle you use, the better. The double-handed split-cane rod, which used to be the weapon of choice for the locals, has now been replaced by new single-handed carbon-fibre rods, in line ratings from 4 to 7.

The critical factor is to match rod and line. Accurate and delicate casting with the dry-fly is all about presentation, and mis-matches of line and rod will work against you. A good-quality floating line is also essential.

The trout snatch at flies and reject them in fractions of a second. If the tip of your fly line is prone to sinking, the brief delay the slack introduces into the line will mean a missed fish. Any pause will surely result in failure.


Silver Sedge wet fly



This is an old River Suir wet-fly, designed for late-evening fly fishing. When fly fished as part of a team of wet-flies, the Silver Sedge fly is an excellent top dropper pattern. By adding horns of stripped hackle stems and a cdc wing, the fly pattern became very buoyant and can now be fished dry and wet. The CDC wing creates awake in the water that definitely excites the trout fish. By addition of deer hair strands in the wing, provides that speckled look seen in the natural sedge.




Hook: Sedge hook size 10-12 I bread: Black or brown Rib: Fine, silver wire Body: Flat, silver tinsel Body hackle: Cree cock hackle Under wing: Natural deer hair Wing: Natural CDC and Mirror Flash Horns: Stripped grizzle hackle stems Collar hackle: Cree cock hackle


Silver Sedge Flies - how to tie


Fly Tying - how to tie:


Fix the hook in the vice and run the tying thread well round the bend. Catch in a length of fine silver wire and then one of flat, silver tinsel.

Take the thread back up the shank to a position close to the eye.

Wind the flat, silver tinsel in touching-turns, to form a slim, even body, with no gaps. Secure the loose end of the tinsel with thread and remove the excess. Next, prepare and catch in a well-marked Cree cock hackle where the body begins and take hold of the hackle, by its tip, using a pair of hackle pliers.

Wind the hackle along the body in open, evenly spaced turns. When the hackle-turns have reached the end of the body, wind the silver wire up through them. Use evenly spaced turns of wire to lock the hackle stem to the body.


Catch in two stripped grizzle hackle stems, to form the horns then select a second Cree cock hackle. Remove the fibres from the hackle's base and catch it in just behind the eye. Secure the end of the wire and remove the excess plus the hackle-tip.

Take a few fibres of deer hair and catch them in so their tips project past the bend. Take hold of the hackle by its tip, using a pair of hackle pliers.

Starting from the wing-base, apply fiver or six turns, working toward the eye. Secure the deer hair firmly then catch in a pair of natural, grey CdC plumes over the top to form the main wing. Add a couple of strands of Mirror Flash and tnm away the excess CDC. Secure the hackle-tip with tight thread-turns then remove the excess. Build a small head, then cast off the tying thread with a rhip finish.

Bill Black, Master tier and fisherman has been in the business since the tender age of 12, and comes from a long line of Fisher people. Over the years he has personally tied many thousands dozen flies. In his formative years he, brother Dennis and friend Randall Kaufmann traveled, chased trout.. .tying flies along the way. Dennis and Bill were first to go offshore for quality flies.. .and it's been historic ever since. We know for a fact Bill has taught many of the original tiers overseas. All in all he has personally educated many of the original master tiers whom have gone on to train thousands of 3rd and 4th generation tiers. Spirit River Group recently bought the Old Feather Merchants buildings here in Glide, so the tradition of selling the best fly fishing products out of "old cow bams" continues on the banks of the North Umpqua.

Bob Popovics is an east coast legend. His exploits as an angler, tyer, and flyfishing instructor are well documented. His creative patterns are the results of years of countless hours testing and refining his flies. He has literally pushed the limits and expanded the scope of tying as we know it. Perhaps the biggest compliment to Bob can be seen in the remarkable number of tvers who have been influenced by his designs and techniques. Bob and his wife Alexis live in New Jersey where they own and operate The Shady Rest restaurant and rose garden in Bayville. Spirit River is thrilled to offer the flies that have been the gold standard for Stripers, Bluefish, Bonito, Tuna, and many others.

Value Bug Packs

The word value is one we take seriously because that it is exactly what you get with these amazing assortments. Just look at the time and energy we
put into each and every pack. Then look at the price. Designed for counter top flash sales or they can be hung in key display areas. Each assortment is hand picked and made special from our excess inventory. So assortments &

Salmon Fly


Many people tend to just sweep their problems away that these same issues can apply to situations on the river. Anglers sweep their fishing problems away on the river by moving to a different spot.


They never truly face the challenge of catching that rising trout fish just out of reach or trying something different to get that fish you know is there, but won't take your offering.


When we arrive at the river, we arrive with many tools to face these challenges: boxes of different fly flies, rods, longer rods, reels etc.

Most fly fishermen know how to overhead cast , but what about spey cast?



Spey casting


Spey casting story


Spey casting is essentially an advanced, aerialized roll cast developed on the Spey River in Scotland, where fly anglers were faced with wide, fast rivers that had trees and brush running all the way down to the river's edge. These obstacles left no room for back casts.


In spey casting, we learn a bunch of different casts and use them in certain situations: The Perry Poke, Single Spey, Snap-T, and the Snake Roll just to name a few, each of them was developed for a certain situation on the river.

If a certain technique works for us one time, we tend to stick with that technique. People are creatures of habit. River anglers are faced with endless obstacles including wind, deep water, back eddies, , last water and over hanging limbs. It is our duty as an angler to accept these challenges mid figure them out.

looking for a solution Spey casting on the river can be part of solution, especially if you incorpo- rate it into fishing with your singlehanded rod. Spey casting is not just for double handed rods. More and more anglers are beginning to see the value of spey casting with a singlehanded fishing rod.


"The river was about 60 feet wide, with steep banks, brush hanging over on both sides, and it dropped off very quickly about four feet from the bank. The river was running from right to left. Being one to never pass up an opportunity to a rising fish, and knowing that there were a lot of anglers on the water, I gladly accepted their invitation and stepped into the river. I waded out as far from the bank as I could, until the water was about six inches from the top of my waders. I turned around to see how far from the bank I'd gotten, and there I stood a mere seven to eight feet from the clearing between the bushes and trees. I thought to myself wow, this is going to be tough. If you were to attempt an overhand cast, these guys were right, the fish were out of reach.


Then it hit me. Then, I knew a little bit of spey casting. Why not try a spey cast? I thought about how I was going to go about this. So after a little pondering, I positioned myself slightly upstream and across from the rising trout, then quickly stripped out a bunch of line from my reel and let the current carry it down-stream until my line was taunt. I lifted my rod tip, swung it around and down at the water. That in turn, shot my fly back upriver and set my anchor point. I swept my rod around over my right shoulder to form my D-loop and then moved onto the forward stroke of my cast. The line and the fly shot out like a bullet, sending my gigantic salmon fly imitation right into the feeding lane.


Because I was still new at spey casting, I was completely amazed at what I accomplished I had just done a Snap-T with my 9 ft 6 weight! It took a few casts before I figured out the right drift but I finally managed to kind a decent brown out of the run. At that point, landing a big fish was not my main concern. What I just figured out with my casting was far more meaningful to me. I opened up a whole new world of fishing opportunities to myself and I began to clearly see more and more benefits of learning spey casts. There is no doubt about it, fly fishing is challenging. We take up that challenge every time we step into the river with our fly rod. At times it leaves us humbled and causes us to even spit out a few cuss words, yet we come back and do it again and again. Is it because we are obsessed? Maybe. Whatever the reason, it is something that brings joy and fulfillment to us. Learning to spey cast isn't going to solve all your problems on the river, however, it's a step in the right direction. It'll increase your arsenal of tools and tactics for solving some of these so called "quandaries" on the river, ultimately improving your odds of landing more fish!"
