Five years of testing have proven my UV Crystal Pupa to be one of my most productive patterns. This pattern is an excellent year-round choice for trout feeding on aquatic food sources and is my go-to pattern when damsels are emerging. Its success relies on its silhouette and visibility. The slender silhouette mirrors the pupa stage of aquatic insects, the trout’s primary food source. UV materials enhance its visibility. Be prepared with various colors and sizes.
A wide variety of colors is available to accommodate any color preferences. I use a # 10 hook in the spring and decrease the size of the hook in the summer and fall to a #12
