What is the color of the little black caddis nymph

Recommended Posts

Any help as I can't find anything through the search engines. I'd rather not assume that it was black just based on the dry fly patterns I've seen.

Try the LaFontaine (God rest his soul) sparkle pupa :

 

hook: 14-16 1xl nymph

thread: grey

body: black antron yarn or dubbing mix

overbody: grey

wing: grey deer hair

head: black ostrich herl, maribou, or dubbing

 

Or an easier recipe:

 

hook: 14-16 1xl nymph

thread: grey

body: black antron yarn or dubbing mix

thorax: black antron yarn or dubbing mix

hackle: brown partridge

 

Go get 'em!

 

John
