Red Sedgehogs sometimes called Red halfhogs. Imitating caddis the Red Sedgehog works exceptionally well in the Autumn months. Try an Red Sedgehog on the point fly with a floating line, this is the classic way to fish Red 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 Red Sedgehog.
When retrieving the Red 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 Red Sedgehog slowly as point fly with a team of buzzers behind it.
Finally although a dry fly the Red Segehogs can be fished on sinking lines!. Put the Sedgehog on the point with a couple of buzzers/nymphs on the droppers. Let the line sink; the Red 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.
