The Sparkle Caddis Pupa (or LaFontaine Caddis Emerger) was the brainchild of caddis aficionado and renowned angler Gary LaFontaine. Tied to imitate the emerging caddis pupa with its mature wings ready to spread from its pupal skin, this pattern can be used to match almost any caddis species and is equally deadly when dead drifted or fished on the swing.

Love this exact sparkle pupa. It slays on the Provo river in the summer time. I also had a great experience ordering from this company. They were quick and efficient. I'm actually ordering more flies today.
