Originated and Tied by Guthrie Fly

Leons �Glitz Caddis Pupa Emerger�

Name Leons Glitz Caddis Pupa Emerger
Category Salmon / Steelhead / All Trout Species
HookKamasan B800 Trout Classic Lure Extra Long. Size 8
Head3mm Gold Bead
BodyTie on Knotted Pheasant Tail Fibres for legs behind Gold Bead. Tie on Olive Green/Yellow Hare's Ear Yarn or Similar for Pupa Emerging. Tie on Lureflash (Glitz) Black at hook bend and wind forward to Hare's Ear Yarn, then tie off. Trim (Glitz) material with scissors.
CommentsSimple, yet effective pattern for River and Stillwater Fishing. You also don t have to use this particular method of using Pantyhose material. Simply using the dubbing tied tightly can attain similar effects.
Fishing Tips Allow to sink and bob on the bottom on Rivers. When using on stillwater, fish almost static with only the odd tweak in shallow water.

This pattern was originated and tied by Leon Guthrie of Galashiels, Scotland. You can see more of his originals at The Flies of Leon Guthrie.
