Here is another fly I tie in the late summer, but not because there are lots of them around. I tie up several of these because it's the time of year I tie my October Stimulators in anticipation of the October Caddis Hatch. I just happen to use the same dubbing blend - angora in Brown, Orange and bits of purple, blue, green and yellow. Having a lot of the same materials at hand makes this a logical next tie. I use the same hook, same dubbing, same wire ribbing. Save them up for the late winter / early spring fishing.
