Thanks for that

Being as I wasn't prepared to go further than "Caddis Fly" I'm pleased to get this much. I don't know that much about them, I really need to look into them. There's just so much to learn, and so little time! And it's all so damned INTERESTING...

Regards

There certainly is. The Field

There certainly is. The Field Studies Council have a fantastic fold out photographic guide to the families, and some species, of adult caddis - I believe its only about £4 so well worth a punt. There's also a detailed RES Handbook that's just come out this year with all of the species in it.
