October Caddis Wet Fly

The October Caddis is one of the major prey insects for the late summer and fall months. There are many different versions of this popular insect and here is the wet fly pattern version I rely on.

I tie this in sizes 6-10, quite a large fly. I fish this in the surface film and like to cast the fly across and let it drift. At the end of the drift, I twitch the fly back. I get some pretty aggressive strikes on the fly, especially on the final retrieve. I like using the Rusty Bronze dubbing rather than a bright orange, but feel free to change this up and use what you have at hand.
