Fly Tying: Simple BH Caddis Pupa

This is a very simple Bead Head (BH) Caddis Pupa pattern to tie and quite effective tumbled through a riffle. It has had some success on lakes, but less so. The green sparkle braid gives a nice translucent look to the abdomen. I have used the bright green and the tan with good success. A small piece of braid tied in and burned off at the end…a small noodle of dubbing spun onto the thread and then wrapped one to two times behind a tungsten bead. The hook this time is a size 16 curved shank pupa hook. This is a perfect beginner’s pattern for Caddis Pupa.
