After my recent blog post on how to tie the balloon caddis, a lot of people emailed me asking if they could buy them somewhere because they don’t tie. Today, I’m happy to announce that the Balloon Caddis is in the gear shop. For now, I’ve only got it in size #10 (which is a great prospecting size that mimics hoppers, large caddis, and stoneflies). I’ll soon be adding a #14 size. Between the two, I think this fly offers a very multi-purpose pattern allowing backpacking fly fishers to carry less and do more.
