The october caddis are showing up on our local rivers. they are bigger than i expected. Here are some things to swing at fish which may fool em into thinking they are getting some october protein.


Emerger for swinging:

Wet:

Dries/wakers:





emerger and wet are size 6.
1st two dries are also 6s, and the last dry is a 4.

I have a good feeling that emerger will land me chrome monday.:smokin:

these should get a workout tomorrow on the Upper Rogue.

Hopefully the next update will include one or more of these in the mouth of a nice slab of steel! :D

Lookin good Matt! You always impress me with your diversity... I just accepted a job offer in the valley so you might have to show me around the river some time! 😁

Great looking flies Matt, they look fishy as heck!! Looks like we will have to get together again so you can show me your flies and I can get your coffee cup back to you.

I don't see how you could miss with these. Your creaativity is stunning.

I like those better than mine. Very fishy. Hope to be swinging in Northern CA in a week or so, and that's the kind of fly I like to use.

What did you use as the underwing on the Muddler style?

I can't say 100% but I'd say it's cdc.
Yes, CDC for underwing, different shades.

thanks all, hoping they work tomorrow.

Hook is Umpqua U503. maybe also under another name... just repackaged... looked like a nice hook at the shop and $8 for 25!

I could have used a few of those on my last trip, huge hatch. Killer tying.
