Great pattern. Well built & durable. Floats great. Used on brookies in the Adirondacks.

Clearly these flies contain some magical pixie hair because they work like magic.

Productive as usual
This fly has time and time again been a front runner for my top producing dry fly of the season. I fish it a lot from a euro rod in a dry dropper combo and find it to work extremely well in broken water usually on small streams. I love to tie them but are very time consuming for me. The ones I purchased are well crafted and durable, hook eyes clear from glue and all tied uniformly.

My Go-To Confidence Fly
This fly cleans house on the coastal cutthroat in my local creeks. I absolutely love it.

Amazing fly for dry-dropper work!
I busted this fly out on the Norfork River in Arkansas with a ruby midge dropped under it, the results were very surprising. I rarely fish dry flies due to the fact that I spend my time primarily on the tailwaters of Arkansas and the opportunities don't present themselves too often. My intention was to use the fly in-lieu of an indicator with a competition style euro rig, on the first drift through a riffle a trout rose and my hook set broke it off. I put another one on and after a couple drifts another willing rainbow took it and was brought to the net this time. There was no perceptible hatch going on but the trout responded in kind. Ultimately, my best fish of the day (an 18 inch cutthroat) fell victim to the Front-End Loader Caddis #12. Highly recommended and I will definitely be ordering more.

Great all around dry fly.
Have caught a ton of trout on this. Great in the smaller sizes on faster small water. Stays high through riffles and catches a lot of fish tumbled through gradient into a pool. Love it. Absolutely my go-to on the Caddis side of my fly box.

Front End Loader Caddis
I bought one and there are three things i really like about the Front End Loader Caddis. 1) I can see this farther then I can throw it. Very visible 2) It floats like a cork. 3) The fish in the little creek I fished near my home fought over the right to catch themselves on it. It's one of Devin's confidence flies and for good reason. I'll be ordering more.

Just Received my Order
This fly far exceeded my expectations. I will be headed to the river this weekend and I will see if it produces the results I was looking for. I received my order in three days. The quality and materials are very good and if it performs as good as it looks I know it will become a stable in my box.
