Orange Sedgehogs sometimes called olive halfhogs. Imitating caddis the Orange Sedgehog works exceptionally well in the Autumn months. Try an Orange Sedgehog on the point fly with a floating line, this is the classic way to fish Orange Sedgehogs. Put them on the top dropper when using a floater. Use two wets on the middle dropper and point. Daiwl Bach works well, directly behind the Orange Sedgehog.
When retrieving the Orange Sedgehog make short jerky pulls. With floatant on the wing, the fly is pulled just below the surface, then pops up through the surface again. This dropping down and popping up really triggers trout.
In a calm or very slight ripple on a stillwater, try to fish an Orange Sedgehog slowly as point fly with a team of buzzers behind it.
Finally although a dry fly the Orange Segehogs can be fished on sinking lines!. Put the Olive Sedgehog on the point with a couple of buzzers/nymphs on the droppers. Let the line sink; the Orange Sedgehog will be the last thing to go under. When you retrive, you will give the flies a very attractive diving then rising action, like a washing line rig but slightly less bouyant but still highly effective.
Looks good, to the usual high standard.
