This is an October Caddis pattern with extra fish sauce. The perfect imitation that is heavy enough to get you in the zone and keep you there. I typically run this fly as a dropper off an even heavier fly but your mileage may vary. While I consider it a Steelhead Nymph it has the added benefit of catching plenty of trout to keep things interesting.  In tying this pattern I am using a new technique that adds a little something extra to the segmented body.  By layering in a dubbing rope of Hare’s Ear you get some extra movement and segmentation.  Enjoy!
