I copied and pasted "Apple Caddis Pupa fly" from your post ... and got a half dozen suggestions at the top of the page.

Brachycentrus appalachia--Apple Caddis, Light Shadfly, Light Grannom; adults have very light tannish or grayish wings (almost white when freshly emerged) and apple green bodies; pupae are apple green with tan wingcases.

I would tie a favorite caddis pupa pattern in those colors, unless he can give you a sample to copy or a reference.

I remember seeing some on Planettrout's blog...

 

Here it is:

I tied up a bunch of them for my son to use in the waters around Roscoe, NY...It imitates the Brachycentrus (Grannom) Caddis. I use this pattern for it here in the Eastern Sierra and it really works well. It is a variant on Craig Matthew's Guide Serendipity that is used on the Madison River for the Mother's Day Caddis Hatch:

I ran into that hatch once, many years ago, on the Upper Delaware. It's a neat looking caddis with the bright green body and the cream/light tan wing. I tied some CDC and Elks to match the adult and emerger in case I ever ran into it again. Never did. Here's a picture of one.

As far as the pupa go, all the ones posted look good. Pick one of the fancy ones and tie him up a dozen, then tie up a half dozen Green Weenies as a bonus and let the fish decide which they like best. I tied these mini-mop flies as generic "Green Rock Worm" patterns.
