The fish have been scarce but good to know some of the insect life survived the floods.

A few of them every day would pack on the flesh.  :D :D   
Rather to my surprise one day I found a boulder in the Braan which had a great collection of recently vacated massive empty nymph cases from caddis probably of a similar type to those ones. It looked like they must have crawled up the stone and hatched out then once above the water level as I doubt it had dropped down in the previous days. The empty body cases were over and inch long and thick with it.

This is a nymph case of one.

Don't worry, be happy.

Right, just down from The Manse Pool. Thought I recognised it.
