Teddys Tackle Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Supply
Bushwacker 7/8/2014

This pattern was discovered on www.flytyingforum.com by Susan, one of our local flyfishers.  We have found it very successful in catching trout, trolled on a sink tip line.  Ted makes a variation on a size 8 hook as a caddis pupa for use in the Interior of BC in June.
