J’s Hi Tie October Caddis (variation)







Same tying sequence as the Mikulak Sedgehog minus the tail; added a head and legs to the original, since bugs have heads and legs. A trailer tie in poor light so a bit rough around the edges, but it should fish; would have used brown rubber for the legs but I forgot to bring it.


hook - Dai Riki 300 #8
thread - UTC 140 hot orange
wing(s) - deer hair
body/head - 1mm foam orange
legs - medium rubber orange
hackle - brown/ginger


Regards,
Scott

Norm, #5 is a Black bear Greenbutt, with black squirrel substituted for Black bear. Many different types of black hair can be used for this pattern. I often use black calf tail.
