They sleep for three years, at the bottom of the river, than they haul themselves on the leaves, sometimes in cluster, they can be bothering, when you walk to  the river, you go across those bushes and they fall, sometimes in your neck, behind the ears, you chase them slowly, almost kindly with your hand. Than, sometimes pushed by the wind, they fly, not very well, and land in the water. Lunch is ready for the trout! Very often they don’t last very long, they are treats for trout that’s for sure. Watch Jake Dodd fishing with his Stonefly patterns, watch those caddis, the days are long, the air is warm, it’s heaven

They are there, under the branches.
