The 5 Flies to be Successful during the Mother's Day Caddis Hatch

Each year about this time a great natural wonder happens. A huge hatch of small dark caddis happen on most of the western rivers. These small caddis or Brachycentrus americanus hatch in huge numbers and are the first really big hatch of the year.
