A variation of the Goddard Caddis originally known as the G & H Sedge, it was created by John Goddard and Clive Henry in England as a stillwater pattern. Goddard gave the pattern to Andre Puyans (a great fly tyer as well from California) in the 1960’s. Puyans in turn shared it in the Bay Area and called the fly the Goddard Caddis.
The original stillwater version was tied with a belly of green fur with clipped deer hair over the top.
