Don't let the name of this pattern fool you and make you think that it is only effective during the caddis hatch! The Parachute Caddis is one of our favorite and most versatile crossover patterns, and can be fished with equal success as either an adult caddis, stonefly, or terrestrial pattern. Topped with a tall white parachute to help you track it on the water, this pattern has all of the ingredients of a trout catcher!
