John Barr has done it again. This Caddis Pupa / Emerger is an awesome looking fly for both fly fishers and fish. It’s tied in a couple of color variations, but the one we featured here is a bright green with a silver hot spot that is sure to attract fish. This is a wonderful pattern during the late spring and summer months when caddis activity is at its peak. Fish it as a dropper, on the swing, or in an indicator nymph rig to get hooked up!
