On a whim a fishing buddy and I went to the salmon river in NY last Friday to skate flies and see what happened. Nothing to report but I now have a goal to coax a steelhead to the surface this season. I’ve been looking at patterns that could be effective and came up with this October caddis that requires me to substitute a few materials for what I had on hand this AM.
I am also very curious about bringing a fish to the surface in the Great Lakes region. Check out Mr. Hirano’s “Dryline Steelhead” blog and prepare to be inspired. His Little Wang pattern looks interesting in its various iterations.
