My little point-and-shoot camera does not penetrate the glare of the stream as well as my polaroid glasses, but you can still see the caddis attached to the rock here. There were everywhere. I would like to be on this stream during a caddis hatch. It must be a sight to see.

All these cased caddis has the classic square cross section like a Grannom, but I didn't pluck any of the larvae out of their houses to check body colors. They were active buggers, too, as when I picked up a rock, they'd wriggle all about.

Good shot! But it makes me wonder about my own patterns now. The heads seem to be quite light in contrast to their darker bodies. Is this true or is it simply that the photo has distorted the true colors. Also their shape is definitely more torpedo-like than my ties.

Thnx. Doug
