    For all of its art, fly tying can get pretty scientific. In fact, many

    creative fly tyers will tell you that there's often nothing more

    valuable to the successful creation of a new fly pattern than the

    intense study of fish behavior.

    Perhaps no fly tyer is more

    familiar with this fact than Andrij Horodysky, a PhD student at the

    Virginia Institute of Marine Science and a contracted fly designer with

    Umpqua Feather Merchants. Most of Horodysky's cutting edge research

    centers on how fish perceive their environment with their eyesight, and

    it's no surprise that he's been able to use some of what he's learned

    at the fly tying vise.

    Horodysky's Rip Cord Caddis Black

    Caddis, with its highly visible parachute post, wiggly rubber legs, and

    flat foam body, is an extremely effective imitation of a black caddis

    in the adult life stage. This bug's ultra-realistic profile shines

    through in all kinds of fly water, helping you catch more trout!
    • A PhD student at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Andrij Horodysky designed this parachute dry fly with flotation and visibility in mind
    • Tan Caddis imitation in the adult life stage
    • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
    • Check under rocks and streamside debris for tan caddis pupae and match size and color before offering a fly
    • Fish on a dead drift high in the surface film
    • Hatches can occur throughout the day across North America
    • The most prolific hatches occur in eastern North America during late summer (August) and through the fall (October)
    • SIZE 14
    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
