1. John,
    Would like to order 1/2 dozen LaF sparkle pupa and 1/2 dozen LaF diving caddis. Prefer barbed hooks as I am getting my nephew started and will probably give most of them to him. He still needs to work on line control, so the barbs help. I prefer to file mine down by half so there’s a smooth bump there. Please advise as to cost and time frame.
    Kind regards,

  2. I really like Silvey’s caddis pupa. It appears to be the best imitation of a caddis fly pupa. What I really want is that pattern tied for an October Caddis. Sizes 6, 8 & /or 10. I fish the Clearwater River in Idaho every fall. Want to fish this fly under a Skater-who knows-maybe swing it. Perhaps two different patterns for different types of “presentations”. One on a scud type hook (TMC 2499SPBL) and the other on a 7999 or some other heavy 1X or 2X long hook.
    If you have any thoughts and would be interested in tying some pupa for me-great.
    Have Fun,
    Gary Bruner
