Fly of the Month

Bead Head Caddis

This simple fly was given to me by a Friend on an outing to a Midlands Stillwater. He claimed that it was his favorite Yellow fish Fly. I have since been extremely successful fishing this fly in rivers and dams for both Yellow's and Trout. My personal best rainbow 2.2 Kg was taken on this fly on still waters.
