So old, and still learning, that's impressive too.

Here's a pic of the dry October Caddis I tied for a possible trip out West this Fall. These were the first 6 I tied. Those tied later look better!

joaniebo, I usually try yo go every year out West in September. Below is an October caddis adult I captured one evening fluttering in the grass along the bank of the Madison River. The adults never got on the water. I have read the egg laying happens after dark, but I never stayed way after dark with moose and grizzly roaming around the area.

I wouldn't call you a coward, more of a sensible person. Perhaps you had caught your share and weren't that desperate.

We used to hit the Lochsa and Selway Rivers in Idaho about mid September for the October Caddis hatch. If we hit it right, they were thick for several days. We've had to fish them out of our food, inside a cafe. Oddly enough, during such hatches I caught a lot of fish on a size 14 Baillie's Black Spider. Maybe they were tired of eating big, juicy bugs and wanted something smaller as a snack or maybe dessert.
