Imitates a spent caddis...or an emerger. A great pattern from Mike Lawson that is featured in Gary LaFontaine's video on "Tying and Fishing Caddisflies". A must have to "complete the cycle".
We use this pattern..yes...when caddis are ovipositing and dying on the surface but also use it as a general searching pattern when nothing else is apparent. Great fly that really gets their attention with the unique profile.
