New YouTube Tutorial: Tying Paul Procter’s Spent CaddisRead Time: 1 Minute | Published: 7th November 2023 | Author: Fulling Mill
In the past week we launched another fly tying tutorial on YouTube. This time we dive into dry flies, and our Technical Manager Steve Carew ties Paul Procter’s Spent Caddis.
Paul Procter is well known for being an absolute machine when it comes to catching big trout on dry flies. A student of bugs, he spends countless days on the river observing fish behavior and hatch schedules, only taking a cast when he comes to a fish of a large size. As a result, he’s become an expert on matching the hatch and feeding trout dry flies. Through this process, he’s developed many extremely effective dry flies to fool these rising fish. Procter’s Spent Caddis is just one such fly. Intended for the days when trout are keyed in on spent or crippled caddis, it can be absolutely essential if the fish aren’t interested in adult caddis.
