Caddis Nymph – Chartreuse
Want to tie exactly what you need at very low cost, or try out a new fly, without buying more expensive materials than you need? Then try our “just enough” fly tying material kits and packets.
This kit includes materials for a chartreuse wire caddis nymph, also known as the electric caddis nymph. This life-like fly works well as a realistic imitation in streams with lighter green caddis. It does equally well in when used in streams with darker caddis green, to grab their attention as an attractor fly.
Plastic tubing around the wire not makes the body segments realistic, and greatly increases the durability of the fly. Together with the buggy yet simple thorax, and black bead head make this fly highly effective.
Follow our step by step instructions, and your flies will turn out just like this picture. Choose packet A, B, or C to get exactly the materials that you need, no more, no less. You’ll find this a very economical way to tie flies. Avoid wasted or leftover materials that you may not use for a long time to come.
All orders come with hooks and all materials needed to tie the flies, with the one exception of thread for which we’ll provide a recommended color and thickness.
Small – Pack A – Material For 5 Flies
Medium – Pack B – Material For 10 Flies
Large – Pack C – Material For 25 Flies
