The Chubbie Caddis by Johnny Mac

 The warm weather we just had made me start thinking of spring again. I tied this Caddis to fish in heavier, faster water. The foam underwing will also be enough floatation to run a dropper rig without it being pulled under the surface.

Thread: 140d Ultra Thread, Rusty Brown

Body: Ice Dub, Olive Brown

Rib: Mylar Tinsel, Gold
