Jay Zimmerman's Clown Shoe Caddis dry fly (known regionally as the Boulder Creek Caddis).

It is a super buoyant, highly visible and easy to tie fly commonly used as a mule to carry large dropper nymphs. Fly fishing guides love this fly as it is very easy for half-blind clients to see! Killer fly during the Mothers Day Caddis Hatch!

Look for this fly from Umpqua Feather Merchants in the Fall of 2010...ask for it at your favorite fly shop!

Be sure to check out Jay's video tutorial for this fly!
