Every serious surface steelhead enthusiast needs October Caddis colored flies during fall. I have been tying my pattern in the burnt orange color scheme for a few years now. I decided to post my most recent octowang, even being a month behind. The fly pictured is tied on an old stock Mustad 3906, size 6. The small, short hooks seems to hold steelhead well.
I have still been seeing a few October caddis fluttering about and there is still some time for more surface action before the season of deep wet fly fishing starts.
