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.

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.
