The Caddisfly Handbook: An Orvis Streamside Guide

by Orvis

This easy-to-use streamside handbook is a succinct and thorough guide to the identification of one of the most crucial and misunderstood trout-stream insects -- caddisflies -- which in some parts of the country are the most important food for trout. The book's compact size and sections color-coded by species allow portability and easy reference for the angler of new or familiar streams. Large four-color photographs of all the major species and detailed line drawings throughout aid in accurately classifying the hatches of the East and West by larva, emerger, and adult insect. Successful patterns and detailed information on the life cycle of different caddis give the angler examples of what flies to fish and how to fish them.
