Caddis Emerger

I can’t remember where I first saw a fly similar to this, but the thing that made me want to tie it is how versatile it is. You can easily fish this as a dropper, an emerger, or even a dry fly if you tied it on a lighter hook.

The fly is pretty simple to tie, but if I was going to tie it as a dry fly I’d add a little more hackle, and maybe a size bigger as well.
