Caddis flies, unlike your mayfly fly or stonefly flies, have a complete life cycle because they pupate. Pupation is often called a resting stage as the insects transform from larva to adult. These flies mate on dry ground or in streamside vegetation beyond the reach of hungry trout. Once emerged, most adults fly off to shoreline vegetation to mate. Some species, particularly those inhabiting lakes scurry and scamper prior to flight, leaving speedboat wakes for trout to hone in on. The caddis dry fly come in many varieties and profiles as well. With over 10,000 species worldwide and 1,400 in North America alone, this complex and diverse order is unique to say the least. Within the 22 caddis families found across the continent lies a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and most importantly behaviors.
