Caddis Pupa with tungsten head – step by step

This is a good all around nymph to imitate caddis pupa. The vague looking nymph seems eatable to the fish. It’s a nice combination of a semi-transparent body and the mix of cdc, soft fibres and the dubbing mix of natural hare’s ear and ice dub. Not to flashy. Just that kind of nymph I personally like to fish.

The tying steps are self-explanatory, I guess. So here are just the materials.

If you got questions, just feel free to ask.
