Re: Orange Caddis

joaniebo, I usually try yo go every year out West in September. Below is an October caddis adult I captured one evening fluttering in the grass along the bank of the Madison River. The adults never got on the water. I have read the egg laying happens after dark, but I never stayed way after dark wit...

Re: Glossosoma (Little Short-Horned Sedge)

dd, thanks!! Those are great caddis photos. I had purchased this thin, clear stretchy plastic cord (0.6mm) for possibly mounting flies for my presentation I did a couple of weeks ago. I never used it and since I have a big spool I decided to try using it as an over-wrap on some pupae imitations. Loo...

Glossosoma (Little Short-Horned Sedge)

Next up, a popular caddisfly across North America, genus: Glossosoma spp. They make a turtle shaped shell out of small pebbles. The larvae live underneath the shell crawling around the rocks on the bottom of riffles and runs scraping the junk off of the rocks. As the larva grows it has to abandon it...
