Hey! You got a license to catch that?

The great thing about catch & release is that the fish can live to grow even larger.
In fact, I've known some fish to grow quite a bit larger before the fisherman even returned home

ummm not sure what you want identified you already know it is a cased caddis

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

bad fish rising-

Your caddisfly larva appears (to me) to be of either family Brachycentridae (Humpless Casemaker), or family Leipdostomatidae (Lepidostomatid Casemaker). I will alert Ethan Bright to your posting, as he will likely be able to identify it more precisely.

Sorry for the delay in responding...
Looks like a species of Brachycentrus (Trichoptera: Brachycentridae). Larvae often suspend their cases into the current, from which they filter feed (using fine setae on the forelegs) course- and fine-particulate organic matter.

caught it in the big manistee river here in michigan if that helps
this is the thrid kind of cased caddis i have seen here
also i caught 2 kinds of none cased that were almost identical except in size

seems all caddis patterns work here if fished enough
even oversized ones all the way up to #4

Don't need a name.. it came from where you were fishing.. tie the fly and name it what you like. And post the results... KOOL STUFF!
Addicted to fly tying and not looking for recovery.
