The Zebra caddis are in full swing right now where I live and I was just wondering what are some of the favorite patterns to fish this hatch? I have been using a BIG caddis thats cream colored thats tied on a size 10 streamer hook that does well as the hatch is just starting, then as the fish get more selective, various CDC emerger patterns work well that are smaller in size (size 12). Just curious to see what everyone else fishes!
I suppose these guys (the zebra caddis) have had enough. I went to the river today expecting good numbers of bugs and fish, and saw only a few of both. This hatch was one of the greatest I have ever fished! Here are some of the tanks from the past 2 weeks! Enjoy.

What river were you on, I love fishing the Zebra hatch on the lower Delaware, Have had stripers and smallies rise to a dry there. largest was a 6lb. striper...Now I'm to far away to fish it, would like to fish the hatch again..
