Fly Fishing Video: Gary LaFontaine on Caddisfly Water
This video covers a subject on which LaFontaine literally wrote the book. “Caddisfly Water” shows how to position yourself properly to fish caddis dries and emergers and demonstrates why caddis water demands different tactics than the typical mayfly stream.
Excerpt: “During a hatch, emerging nymphs in the film escape their shucks and adults skitter across the surface, so you can fish the adults up and across with no drag. And then, after the dry fly has drifted downstream, twitch it and pull it back slowly. There are three possible spots from which to fish here. A is on the bank here. B is on the bottom of the run. And C is here, on the right side.”
