How to Tie an October Caddis Fly: Video

The October caddis fly is the last chance to throw big bugs for eager trout. With winter bringing midge season soon this is definitely something to look forward to. Our version is tied with an orange body and a very full elk hair wing. This gives it a great profile on the water when trying to imitate the large wing of the October caddis and also keeps it very buoyant. Fish it on its own or on top of a dropper rig.
