Creno,, thanks for the wonderful pics of the caddis. This is another piece of the puzzle to figure out! I was into caddis on the south branch of the ausable a few weeks ago and did pretty good, although Im still not certain of the variety I was fishing. But a size 14 tan x2 was very helpful!

These were all Jason's pics - I just tried to put names on them
