    I've used these from Onstream for a few seasons and have found them very good.

    +1 for onstream.
    No the big ones are to big for a small stream in my humble opinion but get a few anyway and copy them in mini mode,.
    They don't cost too much after all !.
    You never know, there could be a monster hiding in there who will only come up for a biggy ;-)
    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    CDC Elk hair caddis

    The life jacket is just that fly with some added materials to make it float like a cork.

    There are many patterns that you can suspend a nymph under, and that will float all day, a grunter a beetle etc.etc
