Green Butt Soft Hackle
Printable Version

The Green Butt Caddis is an emerger that was developed by John Berry of Berry Brothers Guide Service out of Mountain Home, Arkansas. John tied the fly to use during the caddis hatch in March/April/May on the White River. The soft hackle fly is an excellent emerger pattern that can be used any time a green body caddis is hatching.
