Goddard Caddis, Rusty
During mid-summer on larger rivers of the west dead spawned-out reddish brown caddis will litter the surface of the water in the afternoons. Selective trout will often key on this easy fare and ignore nearly everything else. Because they are constructed from porous material these flies will get waterlogged after a few fish. Then the flies will have to be cleaned, dried, redressed and recycled. Carry backups. Don't run out of these flies during mid-summer expeditions or you'll be sorry.
