Moldy Caddis Pupa

This is a simple little caddis pupa tied in the classic green/black combination. The rib on the fly is made from a chironomid grade ostrich herl dyed callibaetis but white or tan should be a good sub.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
