since i'm in NY i don't know what color they are out there.

if it's olive- OD caddis
Image

if it's tan- cree caddis
Image

for some reason this fly just works. it has much experience in your area too.

in the last two nights i caught a smallmouth bass, a rock bass and four nice wild (not native!!) browns on these, it's a prince among caddis.

This is my go-to pattern from mr cutter. Works wonders for me.

I also like to tie mine with deer hair for the slower waters. Just looks a little closer to the real deal, but is much harder to find on the water.

Very nice. Never understood why Nelson's Caddis isn't more popular; pretty easy to tie and it works.

Todd Smith's CDC Caddis Tan. Works everywhere around here!
The first dry fly I ever tied. Not as pretty as whats pictured, but it catches fish.

I've bastardized many a ginseng sullivan pattern, with good results. I highly recommend fucking up his recipes.
