    Default UV SOFT HACKLE CADDIS PUPA - Fly of the Week - Jul 02, 2012

    UV SOFT HACKLE CADDIS PUPA


    This fly developed after a tour last summer of Hareline Dubbing and a conversation with Marcos Vergara regarding the fish attracting properties of their UV materials. He referred me to a book titled, The New Scientific Angling - Trout and Ultraviolet Vision. The author does a decent job of presenting the limited scientific evidence regarding UV receptors in trout eyes and in the UV reflective body parts of hatching aquatic insects. There is scientific evidence that the UV spectrum penetrates the water to a greater degree than the rest of the light spectrum. I decided to do my own research and let the trout decide.

    The UV Soft Hackle Caddis Pupa is the first Fly Of The Week article by Mike Telford. Great fly pattern article, I will be sure to add this fly pattern to my nymph/pupa fly box.... ~Parnelli

    Pretty, simple and pretty simple; nice fly. I've been adding UV dubbing to a lot of my flies, particularly caddis, in the hope that it will at least partially overcome my incompetence.

    Nice looking fly. I have also been incorporating more UV materials into some of my patterns. While I didn't track data or conduct any sort of experiment, I can say that UV materials seem to make for a productive fly.
