I agree Perry, that would make a stunning book, likely widely sought after!OK, that settles it!!! I'm getting a new camera. Do you think it would help? Great images. I would think a book on insects and the flies that imitate them would be in order!
The little brook near my house - about 1 m wide under normal conditions always has a good hatch in Nov. Best way to see them is to put a ladder on my shop and they will be near the top on a warm evening. Saw 12 - 14 last evening.Is it normal for this caddis to hatch this time of year? I say this after guiding the last couple days while in a "T" shirt walking thru fields of dandilions! lol
Hi BugmanThe biggest problem with caddis flies is that there are hundreds of different species and only a handful of common names. So you really have to go back to the scientific name to make an identification. Lucky there are very few caddis that hatch this late in the season and Thomas Ames has authored a excellent guide on eastern caddis flies. This is the second last caddis to hatch in the fall, the last is the winter caddis. I don't have a picture of the winter caddis yet.
