> > Tiny Black Caddis hatch, late fall - Nov 26 to be exact_ Spring Creek Southern MO, Page 2

This topic is about the Caddisfly Family Hydroptilidae

Like the Tricorythodes mayflies, Microcaddisflies can be important to trout because of their extreme abundance in certian waters. Read more...

Goodness.

At least everything ended with you in a better fly fishing locale than Missouri......

I'm still here but I manage to catch a trout every once in awhile anyway:)

GLad I stumbled on this thread. Was fishing the Niangua and experienced what i thought was a hatch of smuts. However after finding this conversation, it makes a lot of sense that i found black caddis. Now that is a first for me. I persuaded a trout to hand over a few , and here they are.
