Caddis Larva Fly Fishing

Hydropsyche comes from a caddisflies family. Caddisflies are an aquatic insects that undergo a complete metamorphosis, they go from egg to larvae, then to pupal stage, and finally emerge as an adult. Most species go through this full process over the span of one year. Out of all the stages, the larval stage is the longest, taking about few weeks to few months. Most caddisfly larva are case-building, building the protective cases they live in, using the silk produced by their salivary glands. There are three major types of caddisfly larva, based on the way they use/make their casings: net-making, case-making and free-living caddisfly larva. Net-making caddis larvae usually live in running water, making their protective casings that act as protection but also as a means of collecting algae and plant food. Case-making larvae’s casings consist of silk and bottom debris: small rocks, sand and twigs. Free-living caddisfly larvae are more important to fly fisherman as these species live unprotected for most of their life and make casings just before going through the next life stage. Vulnerable like this, they are the most appealing food for trout. They live in running water, in riffles and defined currents. They cannot swim, but move around the river bottom using their front legs and posterior hooks. Sizes range from a small #16 to a large size #8, but most commonly are #10, #12 or #14, tied on scud hooks.

To fish this pattern, the best is to use the dead drift technique, presenting the fly along the bottom. Using the strike indicator will help as the takes can sometimes be difficult to detect.
