Butch Caddis – Kelly Galloup
While Kelly is well know for the streamers he ties, I was really impressed with his Butch Caddis. There is a wealth of information contained in this video as Kelly explains a few tips on selecting deer hair and his insights into the pattern. It just makes sense to use the “butt” ends of the hair for flotation. While it is not as pretty looking, it will float much better as the butts are hollow and the tips solid. The name Butch comes from the cut of the deer hair, but when I was growing up, we called this a Brush Cut. Can’t wait to try this one.
