How to Tie a Bighorn CDC X-Caddis

Producer: Tim Flagler

Videographer Tim Flagler: “The Bighorn CDC X-Caddis is intended to imitate the small black caddis that hatch out from late July into early September in significant numbers on Montana’s Bighorn River. While most anglers are drawn to the deeper runs and pools, the shallow riffles are where the action really takes place during this hatch. It’s amazing how so many large fish can take up residence in such skinny water. At the end of the day, don’t be surprised if you find your waders covered with the green eggs that were deposited on the water’s surface by this species of caddis.”
