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. ┬áSounds 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 (?) ┬áThe 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.
