Egan’s GTI Caddis from Lance Egan FlyFishFood

This heavily weighted caddis fly will make a good fly pattern to use as a point or anchor fly. The caddis includes a “wingcase” which sets it apart from the usual caddis. The tail is a simple nub of peacock herl, but I love the addition and think it will help attract a few more fish. The double ribbing (standard and reverse wrapped) will really help with the durability of the fly as well. Lance has a ton of subtle tying tips included in the video, so take notes, this will help to improve your own fly tying skills.
