Hey Guys;

Went to the Neversink today and saw a lot of caddis around , size 18-20. Is this Chimarra?

Thanks

David

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

there is no way from that pic to determine if that is Chimarra or not. There are lots of small dark caddis in various families - Rhyacophilidae, Glossosomatidae, Hydroptilidae, Philopotamidae, Helicopsychidae, Apananiidae, etc.
