Balloon Caddis

Balloon Caddis

The Balloon Caddis is one of our favorite flies, floats like a cork, easy to see, and can suspend a dropper.


The Balloon Caddis is a great fly that’s easy and quick to tie. The foam front end helps to keep the fly afloat and is easy to see at distance or in rough water.
