The 52 Buick was one of the first fly patterns that we successfully used to imitate caddis pupae, and since day one it’s had a special place in our hearts! We fished the original religiously for many years, but like with most fly patterns, we began experimenting with variations and eventually got to the point where it consistently outperformed it’s namesake. It was still kinda, sorta, a 52 Buick, but not really. So in order to differentiate between the two, while still acknowledging it’s roots, we dubbed the new fly the 53 Buick! We have been successful trolling this fly, retrieving it, and/or just suspending it gently wind drifting under an indicator. Either way, it’s tough to beat this fly when the bows are focused on Caddis pupae! Tied for you the exact same as we tie it for ourselves! Get them while they’re here as supplies are limited and they don’t usually last long!
