Spanflex Horn Caddis   Originator : Marc Griffiths | Size: 14 | Weight: copper wire

Olinga feredayi, the most common caddisfly in New Zealand, has a dark olive or chestnut brown horny case. It is found on rocks and submerged vegetation in forested and open rivers and streams of reasonable water quality. Rainbow and brown trout sometimes feed exclusively on these larvae. Trout in backwaters often graze horn caddis off the bottom. The Spanflex Horn Caddis is realistic, durable and it sinks well.

 


 

Fishing Tip:  Fish it dead-drift below an indicator or in tandem with a heavier nymph. In stony backwaters allow the Spanflex Horn Caddis to settle on the bottom and then twitch it as a cruising fish approaches.
