    Some fly tyers focus on tying only impressionistic patterns, flies that

    suggest an insect species, and others focus on a realistic imitation

    designed to fool trout. There's probably no fly tyer in the world more

    adept at creating realistic looking artificial flies than, Bill Logan,

    a professional fly tyer known for his meticulous approach to realistic

    fly design. 

    Logan's Flying Circus October Caddis with Orange

    Head is a tremendous and very realistic imitation of an October caddis

    in its emerger life stage. This fly utilizes the wet sheen of brown

    vinyl ribbing, a bead head for profile, and a webby orange collar. When

    fall colors paint the canyon walls as the river rushes past your feet,

    that can only mean one thing: time to toss an October caddis!
    • A clever fly pattern designed by Bill Logan, a master of the realistic fly
    • Designed with plastic ribbing, a bead head for profile, and a leggy collar
    • October caddis imitation in the emerger life stage
    • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
    • Drift the fly through different water types; faster riffles and shallower water near the banks of a river with moderate to slow currents are the most productive water types for this fly
    • Adding several twitches to the fly during the drift can be quite effective
    • October caddis are available to trout in the Pacific Northwest and in the Rocky Mountain region from early fall (September) through early winter (November), with the best hatches occurring in October
    • Hatches occur consistently and with long duration throughout the daylight hours
    • Strikes on October caddis are often far from subtle
    • When approaching a shallow water environment with a caddis imitation, be extremely careful not to spook happily feeding trout

    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
