October is probably my favorite time of year in the Smokies! The flies that have usually been kind to me are mostly smaller stuff. GRHE's and PT's for nymphs (#16-#20) and small para adams and BWO's (#16-#22) for dries. Also, be absolutely sure to have some October Caddis patterns with you. The one I use is basically an orange EHC in a #12. The fish will hit these hard all day!

I agree with David K. I have personally had great luck with a yellow and an orange elk hair caddis.

Thanks for the clarification! Hugh had recommended that my son and I have October Caddis in our arsenal the last weekend in Sepetember. When I googled October Caddis, I got several different patterns - none alike. We will be sure to tie some yellow and orange EHC. Thanks!

Get an orange palmer. *It's basically an ehc without the elk hair. *Its nearly unsinkable



Orange Body
Grizzley & orange hackle, palmered
Golden Pheasant for the tail.

Yellow and orange stimmies in 12, 14, 16 are all the dries I take in the fall. Look like just about everything they have seen all summer, and are trying to eat as much as possible before winter.
Do not scrimp on flies, the bushes eat them a lot. Watson

I've never had a problem getting them. LRO sells them as well as The Creel in Knoxville.

Hello fellow flypeople,

I have been following the conversations on October patterns and have tied several for the first weekend in Oct. Can anyone tell me if the "green weenies will still be effective"?

Thanks, geerona
