Here is a swap idea for a life cycle of anything in the order Trichoptera, aka Caddisflies. This should give everyone a few flies for each stage, covering most situations.

Although we could do a full swap for each stage over a few months, I would rather do a couple different types of bugs. (Mayflies next time)

Due Date will be March 1st

This swap will have 4 spots open for each stage of the life cycle of the caddisfly. Each swapper ties 12 and I will do an adult also so everyone gets 4 of that stage for sure.

SWAP IS FULL!

Dubs, Looks like their are a few open spots in the pupa/emerger category.

I'll do Gary LaFontaine's Emergent Sparkle Pupa.
