We Take A Closer Look At The Caddisfly / Sedge Life-Cycle
Cold weather fishing hints and tips so you can heep catching!
As ever in this blog we will keep returning to the subject of fly fishing flies. It’s a large, fascinating subject, and it’s as well to learn as much as you can about their entomology, behaviour, habitat and habits as part of your fly fishing arsenal. Knowing as much as you can about the real insects also helps you select the perfect artificial flies for different angling expeditions under a wide range of conditions. Today we will look specifically at Caddis Flies

Imagine the speed of the sedge on the water, that is what you must imitate. Find out more about caddis in lifecycles in this bog article.
