Hydropsyche aenigma (Spotted Sedge) Caddisfly Adult
View 18 PicturesThese big caddisflies were tempting trout as they wriggled out of their shucks (Shuck: The shed exoskeleton left over when an insect molts into its next stage or instar. Most often it describes the last nymphal or pupal skin exited during emergence into a winged adult.), while others skated across the water at a medium pace, probably egg-laying.
