The Balkan Caddis
This Balkan Caddis is tied from Pine Squirrel dubbing - it's super-fine with extra-long fibres which add movement on the water surface. The wings are tied using Hungarian Partridge (1st class feathers), eyes are made from yellow fluoro. The thorax is a mix of Pine Squirrel and CdC. This fly looks so natural. All are tied on a fine wire barbless size 14 hook.
On my local small stream, it's been quite hard fishing of late, especially with the recent hot weather and low water levels we are seeing in North Yorkshire. Even with the low-levels, I am still finding that when the fish are playing hard to get, the "go-to" tactic is to go small and imitative. Using a longer leader allows for a more gentle presentation, especially when combined with a longer lighter rod (my go-to rod for this situation is the wonderful Maxia MX 9' 2wt) employing this method I've caught in mornings, afternoons and evenings.
