    Another good dry fly is the ***dard caddis..The nice thing is you can strip it so it dives underwater and leave it to rise.This usually sparks a savage take and can be a nice trigger in stillwater

    The CDC and Elk or the local Klippies en Kolgaans is an absolute must have for still water trout or yellows. This fly kills at Sterkies when the fish are spitting out beetles or splashing hoppers.
