Originally this fly was designed to be fished around caddis hatches, but it has grown into a fantastic "attractor” point fly to fish throughout the summer months as well.
The turning point for this fly was when, after playing with many variations, I tied some up with two rarely used wire colors. The pattern and construction was already very effective and these two colors were a bit different and had a great caddis feel to them.
I still remember the first day I fished the "Lime” color variant and knew that this combination of colors and materials had just come together into something special - the tastiest of trout snacks. Thus the name, SweetMeat being an archaic term for "an item of confectionery or sweet food”."
