BUGS. continued

CADDIIS, continued

The adults…

fly to the vegetation, In England they call them sedges because they go to the sedge grass. They feed for a week or so as their eggs mature. The adult’s head to the water, deposit their eggs and die. When there is a preponderance of adult Caddis on the surface, they are usually dying spent adults. (Fish for them with a twitch).

Many folks came into my shop asking for Black Caddis patterns because they see Black Caddis flying over the water. The problem is these bugs were over the water, not on it. I don’t know how to consistently imitate airborne insects. Black Caddis crawl into the water to lay eggs.

Point to remember, Be observant
