Sandy River Spey Clave Report.
The 2005 Sandy River Spey Clave drew record attendance and was by far the mast successful Clave ever! The Clave takes a lot of time to set up and take down, so this newsletter is short.  Here is a pictorial record of some of the things that happened at the Clave.
Sorry if you missed it.

Twilight Elk Hair Caddis

Black Brown Olive Tan Starter Set

During warmer months, trout can often be found in pocket-water and fast moving riffle areas of a river or stream. Dry fly fishing these areas can produce explosive action.  The fly pattern that you pick for this bouncy  water must have a lot of flotation and be easy to see. These Elk Hair Caddis Flies are designed to ride the roughest water that will hold rising trout. The bright glowing Antron fibers that coat the top of the wing will help see the fly in what can be adverse visual conditions.  These flies also work in smooth moderate flows.  In the summer and fall, the Elk Hair Caddis series is the staple searching-fly type of the Pacific Northwest. 

 

Here during the evenings of mid-summer, caddis hatch by the trillion billions. If you don't believe it, try setting you camp light next to the water. These evening hatches can be categorizes as nose caddis, ear caddis, salad caddis etc.

Twilight Elk Hair Caddis, Black
This may be one of the best all around "at dark" searching patterns.

Twilight Elk Hair Caddis, Brown
This is the pattern that proved the usefulness of the day-glo wing to me.  There is a time and place where simultaneous hatching and egg laying creates a blizzard of brown body caddis in the bright sun light.  This creates an incredible rise in what should be perfect visual conditions. The problem is trying to figure out which fly is yours when its surrounded by hundreds of look-alikes.  This fly solves that problem.  Experienced proved that even anglers with very good eye sight complained when we ran out of these flies.

Twilight Elk Hair Caddis, Olive
This pattern will fool trout when they are looking for grayish/greenish caddis.  We have found that trout rarely see the bright wing topping fiber or at least if they do, they don't seem to be put off by it.  We have taken some very nice trout from clear, calm lakes with Twilight Series Caddis.

Twilight Elk Hair Caddis, Tan
Aquatic Moths as well as several species of caddis spend the hot parts of the day in the grasses at the edge of fast moving water.  Here there is shade and the cooling effect of the water its self make a comfort zone for insects that would otherwise die from dehydration.  Some of the prime areas become crowed with insects vying for position.  This translates to fluttering movement that often attracts trout right to the waters edge.  Many of these insects are tanish/brownish in color.  Fish upstream along the banks.
