The Beadhead October Caddis Pupa, also know as the Great Autumn Sedge is a go to caddis pupae imitation. Tied with a soft hackle and segmented coloration this fly can be very effective if fished at the right time. Look for the emergence of these bugs to happen later in the day, sometime between September and November. The more leaves you see falling to the ground the better. It is also a great top fly in a tandem rig with a small midge imitation trailing. Check out another orange themed fly here, the October Caddis Fly.
