Caddis Poopah

Fox’s Caddis Poopah Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Caddis Poopah is a great caddis pupa emerger pattern developed by Tim Fox.  The Caddis Poopah can tied tied in 2 main colors: Brown and Olive.  In this video we tied the Poopah Brown color.  The Caddis Poopah is best fished on a nymph rig, with the Caddis Poopah as your lead fly.  The Caddis Poopah imitates a caddis pupa making it’s way (through the water column) to the surface of the water.  A great pattern here in the West and a must have in your caddis box!
