Cream Antron Net-spinner
Originator : Marc Griffiths  | Size: 12 | Weight: 2.5mm tungsten bead + 15 turns 0.020" lead wire 

Net-spinning caddis flies of the family Hydropsychidae are widely distributed in fast and slow flowing stony streams, and often dominate insect biomass on lowland rivers. They are particularly abundant in tailwaters (rivers that originate in lakes).  Colours vary from green/grey to cream below and olive/tan above.  Antron yarn does a wonderful job of imitating the furry, segmentation of these caterpillar-like creatures, becoming a few shades darker and naturally translucent when wet.   


                                                 

 



 

 


Fishing Tip:
Fish it on the dropper of a tandem rig with a smaller pattern such as a Spanflex Crimp or Horn Caddis on the point.
