Rackelhanen - This is one of my favorite caddis dry patterns to both tie and fish. It was developed by Swedish fly tyer Kenneth Boström in 1967. It can be tied in many single colors and 2- and 3-color combinations such as any natural color body/thorax with a grey , cream or white wing; a green thorax, grey wing and brown head (green apple caddis).A grey/olive combination can also be a decent olive dun mayfly imitation.
