Looks a bit warm colour wise ( have you shot it under tunstens?) Markings are nearly right and time of year for appearing is ok.Cinnamon?

The genus is limnephilus there’s two species in that family get called “Cinnamon sedge” lunatus 22-16mm warm brown
And marmoratus 14-16mm Sandy brown
But both of them have a crescent mark at the back edge of wing. Your wee beastie hasn’t and it looks smooth back there?!
My guess would be Limnephilus rhombicus 16-18mm which is described as more yellow and doesn’t have the crescent shape sadly it doesn’t have a common name so we’ll call it col’s caddis! ( and means your light temps ok )

I’m not 100% about Limnephilus rhombicus either I don’t think you’d call it ginger. AND although the details dropped with the DOF( not a criticism Col) the back of the tail is the wrong shape for limnephilus and Stenophylax. ….though that could be the camera angle ?!It was taken in situ, in the boat, so natural light. It was sitting on the gunwale of a Sweeney 'Lomond' boat. I did not change the white balance from auto, which gave 6300 K. It was cloudy at the time, so that seems a reasonable estimate. Jimmy described it as 'dark ginger'.
