"As caddis are the king of flying insects for Eastern fly-fishers, Thomas Ames's book shouts 'Long live the king!' This is an amazingly complete reference on one of the bugs fly fishers most commonly imitate with flies."--Joe Healy, Fly Rod & Reel"The sections on stream ecology and fishing techniques are the best since Gary LaFontaine's landmark book and alone are worth the price of admission. The photographs and descriptions make identifying a caddisfly to the genus level as easy as using a standard field guide to the birds. Ames's writing is just plain enjoyable to read, with crisp, clean prose and lots of the details that make for great natural history writing. I can't wait for the next caddis hatch so I can try out all the new stuff I've learned!"--Tom Rosenbauer, Orvis Rod & Tackle "This book is inspiring: it will inspire you to look more closely at your own caddis, wherever in the world you might fish for trout. And it will inspire you to tie some new patterns to match caddis and to get out there on water, where it all starts and ends, and put what Tom has taught you to use against the trout."--Dave Hughes, author of Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters* Stunning and detailed photographs of a wide range of caddisflies* Caddisfly hatches and how to identify them This book offers valuable tips on how to fish the hatch. Also fly patterns for caddisfly pupae, larvae, nymph, and adults. In the first major work on caddisflies in three decades, it presents the most complete pictorial survey of Trichoptera published to date. Author, angler and photographer Thomas Ames Jr. traveled from the southern Appalachian highlands to the Canadian Maritimes to collect, study, and photograph more than 100 species in 55 genera and 20 families of the caddisflies that fly fishers are most likely to encounter on the lakes and streams of the eastern United States. Based on thoughtful analysis, sound science, and many hours on the water collecting live insects and testing artificial flies, Caddisflies takes the myth and the mystery out of matching the hatch. Learn how you can use the ways in which these amazing insects have adapted to a wide range of aquatic habitats to predict which flies to choose. And learn how to present your flies when fish are feeding on caddisflies. Detailed descriptions and vivid photographs help identify the caddisflies on your favorite trout waters. This all-inclusive book includes advice on tackle and technique and a comprehensive catalog of 80 pattern recipes.
