Light Wing Cinnamon Caddis
This small floating caddis pattern is used in the mid-season when the caddis flies begin to change colour, body size and wings. The caddis take on a light cinnamon-orange colour, and the trout begin to get a little finnicky on the colour of caddis they will take. This fly can be tied with light or dark wings depending on what you are seeing on the water.
