Fly of the Month: LaFontaine Caddis Emerger

 

Caddis Emergers

by Pat Neuner, Wapsi Product Development Manager

April is one of my favorite months to trout fish.  In all the areas where I have lived  April fishing means heavy caddis hatches.  While I absolutely love to fish dry flies, I usually find fishing a pupa (emerger) to be consistently more effective.

While there are many very good emerger patterns, many anglers choose the patterns popularized by Gary LaFontaine.

Here is a video from my friend Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions.  If you are uncertain which pupa/emerger pattern to try out the LaFontaine Sparkle Emerger– it is an easy-to-tie, effective fly.
