In stark contrast to many other fall hatches, the late season caddis hatch is actually one of the bigger varieties to be seen all year! Trout will actively gobble up these morsels as they feel the impending chill of winter nipping at the heels of fall, so be sure to carry a few of these jumbo caddis dries just in case you’re in the middle of the action! One of the things that makes this caddis dry so great is its ability to ride high as it is skittered across the water. A natural caddis will thrash around on the surface as it blindly searches for the cover of shore and doing so with this version of the bug will result in a really great imitation of the natural movement.
