Mike Metcalfe Grand River Caddis Patterns

January 28, 2020

Mike Metcalfe demonstrates how to tie Grand River Caddis patterns

Last Saturday, at the regular fly tying workshops held through the off season at Grand River Outfitting and Fly Shop, Grand River guides Mike Metcalfe and Rob Heale, demonstrated how to tie some of the most effective Caddis patterns for the Grand River tailwater.

Here’s a series of videos, most from Tim Flaglers tightline video YouTube Channel, all in one playlist, that show the patterns they demonstrated: Iris Caddis, X-Caddis, Spent Partridge Caddis, Lafontaine’s Sparkle Emerger, the Palamino Caddis and the Elk Hair Caddis!

Get busy tying up a few of each of these patterns as Trout season will be here before you know it! Click on the video link below to start the series!

Incidentally, Mike was featured in a recent article by The New Fly Fisher host Bill Spicer, “Fly Fishing the Grand River” and this duo will be featured in an upcoming episode of the show.
