Description of the Sparkle Pupa Emerger, Brown - Fly:

The Sparkle Pupa Emerger Fly is the result of closely observing hatching caddis flies in underwater environments. It is an unconventional but effective fish catcher. The antron case is supposed to imitate the gas bubbles used by hatching flies to propel them to the surface. Whether or not this is accurate trout seem to inhale this fly when caddis are hatching. The pupa emerger can be fished with a dead drift, twitched, or swung. Different colors and sizes allow the angler to match the local caddisflies.

Pros: With spring in the air it’s a great time to load up on a few of these Brown Sparkle Pupa Emerger Caddis. Typically, I fish the regular Caddis Pupa in either an olive or a tan color, but lately I’ve thrown the brown into the mix w/ good results. Rather than fish this solo, I prefer to fish a double fly rig with a pupa as the top fly and this one as a trailer. This set up can either be used as a searching pattern or as a way to determine which phase of the caddis the fish are most actively feeding on. Once you see the caddis start to hatch switch up to the double fly rig and hang on! Once they start to snap on the emergers the bites can be savage. These are also excellent in the olive and black colors too, so don’t hesitate o grab a few in each color; you won’t be disappointed.
Cons: In terms of a downside for these I haven’t found one yet other than this patterns works best during the hatch. I’ve still managed to catch fish on these when the hatch isn’t coming off, but tend to do better on the pupa phase and don’t really go for this one until I see the hatch happening.
Other Thoughts: I’ve done well on rainbow trout as well as steelhead on this pattern, but suspect that brownies, cutthroat and brookies would respond to this as well provided you're in water where caddis populations are present. I'll update this post once I have a chance to test that theory.
