Parachute Caddis

Schroeder’s Parachute Caddis Fly Tying Video

The Schroeder’s Parachute Caddis is a great classic caddis dry fly.  The Parachute Caddis is simple, but very effective.  The Parachute Caddis has a very buggy silhouette and does a great job imitating a small caddis fly.  The Parachute Caddis is best tied in tan, but can be tied in Olive, Black, Brown or even Purple!   The Parachute Caddis has been a staple among anglers in the west and is a must have in any trout fly box!
