What color is the underside?
Do you know the latin name?
I imagine mistaking these for Grannom wouldn't be a crucial mistake in matching the hatch.

Apatania Incerta, medium cased caddis heavyily weighted works wonders for these just before pupation. emergence and egg laying occur all day

I used to kinda sorta like you sandfly! lol


Wetflies for the grannoms are the way to go btw. I trail one off my wet and swing and catch a lot of fish on the wet.
