I am just curious about something. I have owned 3 copies of the book Caddisflies by Gary LaFontaine. I don't know, is it just me, or does anybody else feel the same. To be very frank I just find his writing style very boring I have trouble reading even two pages. I keep trying to read it cause I want to know more on Caddisflies and I know it is the book of books on the subject.

I can't seem to read Hatch's II enough. I love the way the wrote their book it is like they wrote the book just for me. I wish Gary's book was like that for me.

Find yourself a copy of Thomas Ames' book on the subject. Its a few decades more up to date. "Caddisflies: A Guide to Eastern Species for Anglers and Other Naturalists". Plus great photography.
