Overview

The Caddisfly Handbook is a convenient and thorough guide to identifying all the major caddis varieties east and west of the Mississippi. Readers can identify a hatch by comparing caddis to the full-color photographs of adults, emergers, or larvae. Caddis are described by their habitats, food sources, pupal cases, and egg-laying habits. Each page in the caddisfly identifier section has an in-scale silhouette for comparison with actual specimens. A special section describes the techniques used to make these imitations. In addition, the Fisherman's Simplified Key is a concise and definitive guide to identifying caddis according to the appearance of the larvae, and is alone arguably worth the price of the book. Finally, there is a personal hatch log for anglers to record their own accounts of the many hatches they observe, so they can return prepared with the flies that they know will catch fish.
