Screaming Banshee Fly Tying Video Instructions

screaming-banshee-charlie-craven-fly-tying-instructionsThe Screaming Banshee is a unique caddis pattern developed by Charlie Craven.  The Screaming Banshee is designed to “skate” or “flutter” on the surface of the water, just as egg laying caddis adults do.  The Screaming Banshee is not only a great skating fly, but also a great spent caddis or attractor pattern.  The Screaming Banshee is a high floating and durable pattern, making it a great choice in heavy current or turbulent water.  Give one a try, they are a lot of fun to tie!
