Over the many years of developing and testing fly patterns, once in a while we encounter an existing pattern that is hard to improve upon. Brian Chan’s Kamloops Caddis Pupa is one of these classic fly patterns! When the Traveler Sedge are hatching this is the fly to tie on to get in the game! Cast it out on a sinker, let it settle to the bottom, and then retrieve in short strips to imitate the insects 45 degree short stroke swim to the surface. Or hang it under an indicator and let the breeze work it’s magic. Either way you won’t beat this fly pattern when the bows are focused on these big meal ticket items! Our hotspot variant adds just the right amount of kick to entice the most picky of trout and has proven worthy of earning itself a permanent component of the pattern. Tied for you the same as we tie it for ourselves and available in two common sizes found in our local stillwaters.
