At its core, our Peeping Caddis- Horned/Stick is the perfect blend of signature traits, creativity, and realism, featuring a unique, lightweight construction that emulates true horned/stick caddis larvae. Crafting it began over two decades ago, on a spring creek in NZ, where caddis were seen being googled up by trout as they drifted just beneath the surface. The result? After plenty on the water trials and design fidgeting. Was this- An unbeatable peeping caddis imitation that feels right at home in the water.
A few years's, Stu came across a description of the same hatch in Mike Lawson's classic book "Spring Creeks" — and, even more surprisingly, met Mike twice in his own fly shop!
Remember, Having more than one of any good fly, and the right size is always a good thing. So, the more significant the pack, the better; that way, you will have a few staple flies doubled and trebled up in the pack selection.
As we know, there's nothing worse than losing the only fly you have that works.
