Emerging Sparkle Pupa
One of our favorite caddis pupa imitations. This fly is lights out during the height of a caddis hatch.
It traps air in the yarn to replicate an emerging caddis and will get some agressive takes! Be ready... The trailing shuck adds to the realism of this fly.
The tungsten bead-head makes this an excellent dropper beneath a caddis dry fly like a Goodard, Elk Hair or Puterbaugh Caddis. It's also a great point fly behind a caddis larva.
