Based off of Gary LaFontaine’s famous Emergent Sparkle Pupa Fly, the Bead Head Deep Sparkle Pupa Fly is just the right choice whenever caddis pupae are in the water and you need to get deep. A great imitation for caddis pupae, this fly should be fished whenever you see caddis emerging or right before the main hatch whenever the pupae are most active in the water. Taking design from Gary’s time spent scuba diving and watching the lifecycle of a caddis, this fly combines a simple synthetic bubble with a dubbed thorax, feather legs, and is finished with a bead head to make for an ultra-realistic fly.


Since this is a pattern tied for a specific group of insects, you’ll only want to fish it whenever you see caddisflies emerging--spring through fall will be the peak time for the Bead Head Deep Sparkle Pupa. When it comes to fishing this fly, you’ll want to match the color and size to what’s in your water, and it’s effectively fished either dead drifted or swung through currents. A staple for any fly box, the Bead Head Deep Sparkle Pupa is a safe bet anywhere caddis are living.
