The Adams, Deer Hair Caddis, and soft-hackled flies are sure bets for the little stream bugs. Muddler Minnows fished with a bit of floatant can imitate late season hoppers. Smaller Woolly Buggers worked against the current will approximate hapless small fry. Give these a try.

Hi,

I'd have to agree, the soft-hackles are very good for fall fishing. While most of the more popular mayflies are gone, there are still caddis around. As suggested-Hare's ear dubbed soft hackles are excellent. I like two patterns called the Leisenring Spider and the Diving Caddis. (I've put both of these patterns in the database.) Sometime, the olive colored flies can still be about, so small soft-hackles (14-18) in olive with gray dun hen hackles, snipe, or gray starling work great.

Also, i really like to fish woolies and soft hackles in the following months. and early fall, hoppers work well.
