October Caddis

Autumn is approaching and it may be the last trips with the dry flies before winter closes the season. The last autumn days you can experience the season's last hatching of e.g. caddis which is naturally referred to as October Caddis. It is an important last mouthful for the trout and graylings, and on the last trips of the season you can experience a decent dry fly fishing with caddis imitations in the more orange shades that match the colors of october caddis. In this video, we once again have our Swedish fly tyer and fly fisherman Håkan Karsnäser behind the vise to demonstrate his take on a super flotant and simple imitation – with a little impregnation and dry fly gel, this fly will stay afloat for a long time due to the buoyancy of elk hair and the trapped air in CDC feathers.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
