Silvey’s Primetime Pupa

This fly is an extension of the Silvey's Edible Emerger only designed to be fished deeper.  There is no deer hair on the fly to keep it on or in the surface film. 

For the Edible Emerger I created a body that was slim and tapered at the end similar to the naturals.   I added marabou to add movement to the pattern, a material none of the existing patterns use.  Fish key on movement and marabou is one of the materials that have the most life like qualities when wet.

The Primetime Pupa can be fished in a number of ways.

Dropper – Drop this fly off of an easily visible caddis dry when fishing during caddis hatches.  Don’t forget to let the fly swing into shore at the end of your dry fly drift.

Nymphing Plus - Primetime Pupa can be nymphed but make sure it is the upper nymph on a 2 fly rig so it floats higher in the water column.  If you see a fish rise while fishing this way cut off your 2nd nymph and take any weight off the rig.  Cast it at the rise without having to completely re-rig.

Be sure to catch a newly hatched adult and examine the body color. Fish can be very selective on color.

Try fishing your Primetime Pupa with a wet fly swing similar to fishing a steelhead fly. Use a shock loop and let the fish take a little line so they can turn back towards the bottom before setting the hook.
