In addition, the commonly fished caddis sizes of 12 to 16, when tied on a TMC 200, require a hook three sizes smaller for the same shank-length. This can be a problem with larger fish, in heavy currents, and with the growing strengths of modern tippets, especially when barbarians like me have been known to fish 4X or even 3X with these patterns. A standard dry-fly hook takes care of both the strength and hookup requirements. Dead-drifting the Speed Stimulator works well; twitching and skittering it are other effective methods.

It does make a buggy fly, but it is time consuming and forces many tiers to rely on extra tools. Caddisflies are vulnerable to trout at all stages of life: The larvae are standard fare all year; the emerging pupae bring trout from the depths to feed; trout sip the floating adults; and egg-laying females complete the food cycle. Mayflies may be pretty—the glamour fly of the trout stream—but caddisflies are everyday meat and potatoes. During periods of caddisfly hatches, a basic knowledge of the Tricoptera order's lifestyles can make for more productive fishing.

I like to fish caddisfly larvae slightly larger than the adults the naturals will eventually become—tie your flies on sizes 12 to 16 hooks and you'll be set for most of the Rocky Mountain caddisfly larvae. All caddisflies change into a pupal form prior to emerging. As they prepare for the transition from pupae to adult, they are active and drift in the river's current. Fortunately, the larvae patterns work for the deep pupae. As the insects work their way to the surface, emerging-pupae patterns become very effective.
