Bloom Caddis

Bloom Caddis Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Bloom Caddis is a very deadly caddis pattern developed by Dave Bloom on the Missouri River.  The Bloom Caddis is one of those patterns often overlooked by most people.  While everyone else is using Elk Hair Caddis and Stimulators, the Bloom Caddis will often catch fish when others fail.  The naturally mottled body and “spikey” dubbed thorax is the key to the flies success.  Caddis often have mottled bodies and wings, and this is what the Bloom Caddis imitates.  A great pattern to have in your caddis box….easy to see too!!
