Holy Grail

Holy Grail Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Holy Grail is a great little caddis emerger pattern.  The Holy Grail is one of those “go to” patterns used by many western trout guides.  The Holy Grail is just plain buggy and is also very forgiving pattern to fish.  The Holy Grail can be dead drifted, swung at the end of a drift or even stripped behind a streamer.  The Holy Grail can be tied in three main colors: Natural, Olive and Black.  All are equally effective and great to have in any caddis box!
