Nitro Caddis Pupa

Nitro Caddis Pupa Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Nitro Caddis Pupa is a great little fly developed by Andrij Horodysky.  The Nitro Caddis Pupa imitates a caddis larva emerging and developing into a caddis pupa.  This is the most vulnerable stage of the caddis and big trout know that!  The Nitro Caddis Pupa can be tied in Olive and Orange variations, with the Olive being the most popular color.  This fly is best tied in #12 to #16 and makes a great lead fly on a nymph rig.  This fly really “pops” and is fun to tie!
