"There are certainly more elaborate caddis patterns. However, none are more effective in my experience than the Orvis bead head caddis pupa. Consistently produces trout in both olive and cream, and in all three sizes. Great on pan fish too. I have recently begun tying this pattern using these as a guide."

"I reside in Colorado I do a lot of fly fishing in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming even have Ventured to Northern California a couple of times the Beadhead Caddis Pupau is my favorite fly of choice. usually trail that behind a red San Juan Worm a real good combo, in fact this past summer fished that pattern on the Cache Le Pouder river near Fort Collins and landed 2 fish. always seems to catch fish.funny thing is only color that works for me is the Olive have tried other colors and nothing, olive goes back on and hang on.Great Fly !!!!!!!"
