    Giant Rusty Sedge - Fish them at night

    Here's a pic of this large caddis - #8-10. They come off at dusk into the night. Fish a big, brown caddis pupa or low floating dry after the sulphurs have diminished. It's a Ptilostomis sp. for you bug nerds....

    Re: Giant Rusty Sedge - Fish them at night

    It was like a horror movie, the amount of bugs swirling in the glow of the Golden Arches last night, Ronald and the outside crew were cursing the bugs as I explained to them that these particular bugs are fantastic and there is nothing to worry about, they won't bite you....Spinners, caddis, Blue winged olives, and even a few crane flies (these ones creep them out the most, they think they are GIANT mosquitoes) in for good measure......

    Basically what you're saying is that my Egg McMuffin was flavored with bugs this morning?

    So what did you tie on to imitate it? Brown pellet? Saw belly? Meal worm?

    To look good is to fish good

    Yes, and the fishing at night is so your friends don't see you killing all those trout in this hot water

    Yea, that's another LU idea to save the planet by reducing green house gasses. He gets pre-poached trout from the SB for the McFishwich
