Here are a few photos I took of some micro caddis emerging.
Adult Micro Caddis
To give an idea of the size, the body was about 2-3 mm long and the wings were about 5mm long.
Here is a sequence of photos showing the actual emergance, in all it took about 3 or 4 minutes.
In case you are wondering the background is my wader leg. The pupa climbed about 6 ins (150 mm) above the waterline before emerging.
In each case the caddis held its wings upright to dry .
I will try to get some better images as soon as I can. Hopefully I can capture the pupa emerging from the water.
Very interesting photos Robb,
Puts things in perspective regarding fly size choice when these things are emerging.
Thanks for sharing.
