Bead Head Emerging Sparkle Caddis Pupa

Before the fish are rising to caddis adults, the mature caddis pupa will break the seal, crawl out, and begin two attempts to reach the water's surface to complete the life cycle as an air-breathing adult. As it works to reach the surface, the emerging pupa will begin to drift downstream. This bead head emerger fly pattern is perfect for this period. Fish this fly across and down, letting it rise on the swing, imitating the rise of the real caddis pupa. The bead head causes the fly to ride head down which is the proper position of the emerging caddis. Color, Olive. Sizes: 12, 14, 16.

Great fly for trout,
August 22, 2012
By: fishng1

"This fly was something different than I had seen anyone else using, and I had not been having much luck, so I gave it a try. It worked. Sometimes I think trying something they have not seen gets you an extra strike when all else fails. As with all the Orvis fly's I have purchased, the quality is great. Shipped quick."

Mouth watering,

"The Sparkle Caddis has a lot going for it. Most important, it resembles an emerging insect, tender and tasty. I have found another sure bet to stock in my caddis fly box."

Try it as a dropper,
January 8, 2012
By: simslax
from Avon CT
"In the smaller size (16) this is an excellent dropper when tied under a larger Stimulator or Elk Hair caddis dry fly during a caddis hatch. Fish rise to inspect (but often refuse) the dry fly but then hit the emerger dropper."

"I couldn't be happier with this purchase. One fly withstood an all day barrage of hungry rainbows and is still in great shape."
