October Caddis...part 2

Well young man, what is your dry-fly pattern for this "bug"? :? I see big tan caddis/moths through November on warm days on small waters... so CJ, please show us something... :P I'm off to pound the Esopus now... ;) was cloudy, but the darn sun is coming out... :cry: Ed


The other side of the water column...

Stacked deer hair wing, synthetic dubbing and cree hackle, these will float for sure. Who knows...I may be tempted try one next time out, after the trout maul all the nymph versions :lol: CJ

These are #10's, TMC 2312's. I think 10's and 12's would be a good match. CJ

Very nice CJ, I tie a deer hair parachute for the October caddis. Someday I will learn to post pics.
