Davie ties a caddis emerger pattern, originally tied by Davy Wotton, but with a modern twist. This fly can be very effective on rivers and stillwaters when sedges and caddis flies are hatching and even when the adults are laying eggs on the water. Simply alter the size and the colour to match the hatch!
