The woodchuck caddis....with groundhog day in the books and so much attention paid to this lovable rodent I chose to splash some attention his way also, be it a week plus from his day, better late than never. I'm not really sure who was the creator of this fly but it sure looks like a bit of Fran Betters influence in the fly.
The materials are woodchuck, dubbing, I used orange opossum, and brown and grizzly hackle.
As you can see it has a great caddis shape.
And it has super floating ability.
I tie them with a "hot spot" at the tail end of the fly. This one uses hot orange thread. I also use a yellow thread spot.
And yes they do work. I was able to bring a few to the surface on my last outing.
