The Catchall Caddis is one of Davy Wotton’s go to Caddis patterns either at the top dropper in a team of wets or as a single fly for fish feeding up in or on the film.
The Catchall is very effective fished as the top fly with the killer SLF Trans Caddis on a dropper 3′ down.

Body: SLF Whitlock Red Fox thorax or Hare’s Ear
Ribbing: Broad flat gold tinsel, other options are silver or pearl.
Wing: Elk Rump: This hair will stack tight and not flare.
Hook: Sizes 12 or 14. 10s may be used for big water conditions.
