October Caddis, in November, just in time for National Blog Posting Month

November 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

My friend, John LeJeune tells me that its National Blog Posting Month, where he will be making a blog post at least daily for the entire month of November.  Sounds like a great idea. I’m in.

I’ve been very busy lately with work and home projects, so haven’t had time to concentrate on this blog. As such, I have several topics back-logged up. This will be a good excuse to clear out my backlog of blog posts.

Since its November, and nothing says November like the October Caddis (?)  The next half dozen posts or so will feature the October Caddis patterns that I’ve been tying and collecting, plus some information about the fly itself.

I recently was steelhead fishing on the Deschutes, and every now and then would hook up on the bush behind me. Those hook ups resulted in a cloud of October Caddis. Future years will tell of the impact that I had on the October Caddis population near the hole in the wall.

This pattern was tied by The Fly Shop in Redding. It looks like a good attractor, indicator, and imitation – all wrapped in one fly pattern.
