The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

Rhyacophila (Green Sedges) Caddisfly Pupa Pictures

I collected this pupa and several like it from the same stream and on the same day as this larva. I suspect they're the same species. Every pupa I collected was in a brown casing like the one shown in one of the pictures below. I cut this pupa out of its case after a picture so you can see more details. It is close to but not fully developed.

This caddisfly was collected from the Long Lake Branch of the White River in Wisconsin on June 5th, 2005 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on May 25th, 2006.
