Angler's Entomology Podcast

Welcome to the Angler's Entomology Podcast.  On this podcast and blog, I am documenting my re-entry into the world of entomology.   Join us as my wife and I explore the environment in which trout live and the insects and other creatures that live in and share that space.  This is not just a dry recitation of facts, I hope to bring these creatures alive - show you how they live, what makes them fascinating in their own right, and help you understand how they interact with trout in ways that will help your fishing.  So, please join us.  I hope you enjoy the program...

Aka Green Caddis, Green Sedges or Rhyacophilidae.  A common, easily identified caddis - at least in it's larval stage, that has wonderful behavior that makes it fun and effective to fish.   We'll talk about the critter - but also a lot about the flies and the history of the flies that...
