I'll do the LaFontaine Sparkle Pupa Emerger. Hook size dependent on how well the hands work on that day.

I tried tying some of the caddis pupas with the remaining stock I have but had to put in an order for Antron and some other goodies to get this done right. Should be here any day now and I can get to vice. Hopefully soon because next Tuesday I get to have a first failed surgical procedure done again. When he says he has to be more aggressive about creating scar tissue in there it means I'll have time I can't sit at bench or be doped up too much to tie. If worse comes to worst I can always do some basic elk hair caddis.

 

By the way. I've tried tying caddis with deer hair from various patches but it just flairs too much. What and where would you order deer hair patch to work for caddis. I recently had a whole hide I cut up patches on but botched the curing and threw out. I can get another full pelt soon and where would be good hair to take from.
