Every Thursday in November we will list a limited 4 dozen run of a new fly in our online store.  One new pattern each week.  These are patterns we think are cool, don’t have room in the shop bins for, or are just playing around with and haven’t decided on them yet.  Week three’s fly is a Spent Apple Caddis. Tied on a Daiichi 1130 #16 curved hook with DRC’s Fermented Apple Dubbing.  The Fermented Apple Dubbing is darker than our normal Apple Dubbing to match the body color after the caddis have been living in the bushes for a few days. The wings are tied on the side of the fly and are a mix of tan cdc and deer hair.  The fly sits low in the film- perfect for spent and dying caddis.   Click here to see it in the store

Air temps have dropped significantly this week and you will find some skim ice on the slow edges and backwaters.  Your best bets will be either nymphing or throwing streamers.  On the really warm afternoons we have seen some fish rising to midges and tiny olives but that’s a long shot.
