The Goddard Caddis fly pattern is credited to British fly tyers John Goddard and Clive Henry who created the fly back in the 1960’s. Originally, it was called the G&H Sedge in Great Britain after the initials of the last names of the originators.
It was later modified by Andre Puyans who had a fly shop in San Jose, CA and who promoted it as Goddard Caddis as it is known today.
It was used for lakes and still water fishing eventually finding it’s way into the United States about ten years later.
It features a spun deer hair body, a couple of antennae and brown hackle making it a perfect caddis imitation. It is a fly that deserves to be in every angler’s caddis fly box.
