Fly Fishing Yellowstone - Little Brown Caddisflies -
Presentation
Pupa:
The "Perfect Fly" Little Brown Caddis Pupa works great late in the afternoon and
on into the early evenings. Most species hatch in moderate to slow moving water
The fly should be presented using an up and across presentation.  You may
want to add a tiny bit of non-toxic weight above the fly about eight inches.

When the fly hits the water, mend the line to get it down to the bottom as quickly
as possible. It should bounce along the bottom until it reaches the down and
across position. When it does allow the fly to swing all the way directly
downstream from your position and stop the tip of the rod to allow the fly to rise
back up to the surface. Let it come to the surface and stay there for a few
seconds before making another cast. The trout usually take the fly on the rise.
If you don't get any action in a few cast, move downstream a few feet and repeat
the process.

Adults:
The best way to determine where to fish our "Perfect Fly" Little Brown Adult
imitation is wherever you see them depositing their eggs on the water. They will
usually ride the water for a short distance when dropping their eggs. They
deposit their eggs in the same water they hatch from, so if you fish the hatch
you should know where the adults will return to lay their eggs.

Look for them in the late afternoons near the banks. During the hot summer
they are difficult to see because they don't start depositing their eggs until near
dark. In the early and later parts of the season and in the higher elevation
streams they may start as early as the middle of the afternoon.
