Shark’s Caddis Larva

While crawling around the internet one occasionally comes across something interesting and even novel.  When I saw this picture of Shark’s Caddis Larva, I thought to myself  “Now that looks good!” I need to tie some of these. The pattern is deceptively simple yet it looks so realistic – Radoslav uses a body of twisted antron and hare underfur to create the seductive translucence.  Check out the step-by-step tutorial for Shark’s Caddis Larva on the The Global Fly Fisher website.  Global Fly Fisher is a great resource for fly patterns and other articles on fly fishing.

    I have had great success with this pattern in New Zealand on both rainbow and brown trout up to eight pounds . . . . it’s a killer pattern !

what say you?
