How to Tie an October Caddis Euro Nymph

Producer: Tim Flagler

October Caddis are different from many caddis species in that as pupae they’ll swim or crawl to a nearby rock, where they’ll emerge as winged adults and shed their pupal shucks. They seem to prefer fairly steep rock faces adjacent to somewhat deep, moving water. Most of the time, October Caddis will crawl out right at dark but their shucks are easiest to find early the next morning, before they have a chance to dry out, fall off and get lost to the river.
