La Fontaine Sparkle Pupa

When he researched caddis behavior, Gary Lafontaine actually observed Caddis fly behavior under water and designed the Sparkle Pupa fly to imitate a gas bubble formed by rising caddis nymphs. Carrying these nymphs in several colors will ensure you a successful fishing day and you'll be confident using this fly. Sizes 14, 16.

"dull, no flash that I expected. I ordered size 14; they seem small for a 14. Didn't use on a trip as I'd planned as a result."

"As a novice fly fisherman, I'm glad to find good quality products from a company I trust. I'm looking forward to using this fly when the weather warms up; if I were a trout, I would bite on it!"
