Re: October Caddis

Wayne (DUBBN) and joaniebo - Could you guys post the recipes for your patterns. :D ;) I tend to over hackle but here's the link to the video for the materials...... basically hackle, gold wire and thread. I used an orange thread instead of brown. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi4OI6dfK48&t=3s
