The Deep Sparkle Pupa was created by Gary Lafontaine who was one of the most, if not the most, recognizable name in fly fishing or tying over the last two decades. After studying aquatic insects for the better part of 10 years Lafontaine’s genius created the deep and emergent sparkle pupa to accurately imitate the "bubbles" caddis emergers generate to reach the surface prior to hatching. Carefully creating these sparkle patterns with synthetic materials such as Anton and Tri-lobed nylon allows small air bubbles to be trapped in these synthetic materials which will shimmer and sparkle under the water surface as they reflect sunlight becoming very appetizing to hungry trout.
To fish this very special sparkle pattern simply use a light mono leader accompanied with a floating line. Pay close attention while fishing this pattern it will not take long until the fish take notice and greedily snack down on your fly.
Tie this pattern in sizes 12-16.
