Tying an October Caddis

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Studios

Matt Grobert ties a pattern that’s relevant to fall fishing all over the U.S., the October Caddis.  The insect Grobert’s pattern imitates is the spectacular pumpkin-colored adult caddis that emerges in the late afternoon, evening, or early morning beginning in September and running right through October, to just before truly cold weather.

As Matt says: “The October caddis is the ‘Isonychia of caddis hatches’ in that it is a large insect that hatches sporadically, and the trout become accustomed to their presence for about two, autumn-colored months of the year.”
