The fact is, when trout are keyed in on Caddis dries a dead drift presentation may not be your best bet. If you’re not getting strikes off the dead drift try skittering your Caddis at the end of the drift. To properly skitter a Caddis just do your best morning after a bender impersonation and give your rod hand a case of the tremors right when the Caddis starts to swing at the end of the drift. Think Nick Nolte tremors, not Gary Busey tremors here…less is more. This also works great when you’re fishing an emerger behind the dry.
