Re: October Caddis?
I would definitely fish the ESP dead drift during the emergence and swing some diving caddis as well. A great combo in the early stages (pre-emergence) of the hatch would be a weighted caddis pupa on point and a diving caddis as a dropper. Drift it through runs and make sure to do the Leisenring Lift at the end of the drift. More than any other bug, trout will key in on Caddis moving towards the surface and they will hit those big critters HARD.
Hang on, for real.
