The Teichert Caddis imitates the lepidostoma caddis so common in our weedy Sierra ponds. It roams the weedbeds and often drifts just underneath the film. The caddis is often found in windrows on the down wind edges of lakes. The fly has almost neutral buoyancy which allows it to sink slowly and drift naturally. This is a heave it and leave it pattern. When trout are cruising or only rising sporadically, often the meaty Teichert Caddis is just the ticket.
