Shark’s Caddis Larva

I started tying these a couple years ago and was impressed by just how realistic this pattern looks when it get’s dunked. The image from GFF shows just how close the pattern looks. I tried this out last summer and had some great results while hunting sunfish perch. Click here to visit the GFF Tutorial

We also have a great youtube clip of this pattern to share. It is a great pattern, easy to tie and is a definite fish catcher.
