Bead Head Pupa Pattern…

A very few of you might recall that SwittersB & Exploring was, at first, SwittersB & FlyFishing…so for old time’s sake…a fly tying post displaying a pupa pattern with bed head….I use tie this to represent/suggest a caddis pupa, subsurface.

Caddis Pupa Pattern

Lest you forget, or never knew, SwittersB & Exploring was until recently SwittersB & Fly Fishing. A still passionate pursuit of fish via the fly exists for SwittersB. Along that pursuit’s pathway is all manner of photographic experiences in the beautiful outdoors. Here is a handy, enormously successful fly pattern, a Bead Head Caddis Pupa pattern. A little macro photography fun along with tweaking the image too.

The fly is comprised of a size 14 nymph style hook, 8/0 black thread, Starling feather barbs for the tail, copper wire rib counter wound, black ostrich plume abdomen and thorax, black hen hackle fibers for  the wingcase and a Starling feather wound at front for legs. Very productive little fly in sizes 12-16.

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.
