Why use a Caddis for catching trout? The natural caddis is a great source of nutritional protein for the trout. Therefore having a Caddis in your box will certainly be a go-to fly when out on the river or lake!

Ben Beckwith has shared a very simple pattern this week tied on a Partridge Grab Hook. This is a very popular barbless hook and will be a staple in your bag! All current stockists can be found on our website but for now have a look at Ben's guide.

Mark Skovby on the new Z4R barbless Bloody Intruder or Trailer hook (available in sizes 2/0 to 6)
These short shank up-eye single hooks are great for any kind of intruder style patterns and with no barb its just perfect for Danish Atlantic Salmon rivers!
