Tying the Tabou Caddis Emerger

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tim Flagler ties Steve Schweitzer’s Tabou Caddis Emerger on a size 14 Dai-Riki #270 hook.  The larger size fits the feather choices used in the fly’s construction.

This rather unkempt caddis emerger pattern dates to 2002, when author Steve Schweitzer began noticing that emerging caddis flies weren’t neat little packages that fit a specific pattern.
