Macro Photography: Caddis Pupa/Latex Abs

Latex: It has come, gone, loiters but never seem to get the usage that it appears to warrant. I mean Latex for fly bodies…nice segmented abdomens. Give it a try over underbodies of smooth wrapped materials built up to the shape of a plump abdomen over wraps of weighted wire or try some of the formed metal bodies.

Caddis Pupa SwittersBWith both of these Caddis Pupa flies, I wrapped segmented abdomens using colored latex to match the pupa colors I was attempting to replicate. The thorax regions were dubbed with deer hair spun to attempt to gain that legs, antenna, emerging wing look. The flies are dredged along the bottom and swung upward at the end.
