Your letter to the bugman:  Hi bugman! This flew into my house late at night in august. It has clear wings like a fly, but shape-wise it holds itself like a moth! And very long antennae! Any idea?

Caddisfly

Dear Indrid,
This Caddisfly does share many physical traits with Moths.  According to the North American insect identification site BugGuide:  “Adults resemble moths, but wings are hairy instead of scaly.”

Hi bugman!
Thank you for the quick reply; I appreciate your help!
Love ya, bugman!
