The Wickham’s Fancy Caddis has a metallic gold palmered body to help attract the attention of passing predatory Trout. The sunlight in the water reflects off the gold coloured material and catches the eye of the fish hopefully increasing the number of takes.
There are two claimants to being the designer of this general caddis attractor pattern. Dr T.C. Wickham and George Correll who stated that he had made the same pattern for a Captain John Wickham in 1884.
Originally designed to be used in the chalk streams in Southern England, it has done well over the years in lakes as well.
