One of the most popular caddis pupa imitations out there, the Emergent Sparkle Pupa Fly is an excellent choice whenever you find yourself in the middle of a caddis emergence. Designed by caddisfly-aficionado Gary LaFontaine after spending three years in scuba diving gear studying caddis pupa, this fly is super effective and has all of the research needed to back it up. Combining a synthetic tail that’s pulled over a dubbed body with an elk hair wing, this fly does an excellent job at imitating the caddis pupa’s bodies while letting you fish it right in the surface or just below it.
Able to match nearly any of the 15,000 species of caddis found worldwide, the Emergent Sparkle Pupa comes in a variety of colors and sizes so you can closely match what’s in your local waters. Since it’s such a direct imitation, this is a fly that you’ll want to fish whenever you see the naturals emerging, and it’s a safe bet to keep at least a few different colors and sizes on hand from the start of spring through the end of fall. Whether you’re in the Smoky Mountains or awaiting the Mother’s Day caddis hatch out west, you can count on the Emergent Sparkle Pupa Fly to do the trick.
