Clint's Cinnamon Sedge Extended Body


I got a call from a friend the other day and he asked me if I had seen any October Caddis on the water yet. We have had a lot of rain on the Mad River so between the storms I took my bike down the street to go have a quick look. I typically see Caddis fluttering about at a little cattle crossing where there is a lot of oxygenated water. When the weather is in constant flux Caddis tend to pop up here and there at this time of year. It helps living so close to a trout stream, the downside is that my buddies call me for the daily river scoop. Lo and behold I had a few short glimpses of the little rusty colored Trichoptera. So I reported back to HQ and Ben asked me to tie up some Rusty Sedges for him. This pattern is a great extended body pattern I came up with on a short shanked hook. I tie it using medium gray, warm gray, tan, cocoa brown, and even a golden straw color.
