Faced with the prospect of high water flows on the season opener this weekend, I spent a few hours working on a few anchor fly patterns. I was inspired to tie this particular pattern by my three year old son. He was walking around the house with a piece of chartruese colored nylon twine around his neck. Not wanting him to string himself up I took it away from him. As I was getting ready to throw it away, I realized it would make a perfect larva head for a peeking caddis pattern. A jig hook, large facetted/slotted tungsten bead, a lead underbody, grouse hackle for legs and a spiky hares ear body complete the package. A basic peeking caddis pattern but this one has some serious weight behind it!
