Rich - I've only been able to witness and fish a travelling sedge hatch once in all the years I've been fishing - what were the rises like to the big hexaginia stuck in their shuck motoring around?I love the Goddard Caddis in large sizes for traveling sedges, stuck in the shuck hex emergers and in this case October Caddis. In Minnesota I used this early in the AM to imitate hex that were stuck in the nymphal shuck and motoring around in circles on the lakes surfaces trying to get free.
