American Grannom Pupa
The American Grannom Pupa fly is an artificial fly pattern that imitates the pupal stage of the Brachycentrus americanus caddisfly. This fly is commonly used by fly fishermen in North America to catch trout and other fish that feed on caddisflies.
The American-Grannom Pupa fly typically consists of a hook, a weighted body made of dubbing material or thread, a rib made of wire or tinsel, and a wing case made of turkey tail feather fibers or synthetic material. The body is designed to mimic the shape and color of the caddisfly pupa, while the rib provides segmentation and adds durability to the fly. The wing case imitates the translucent sheath that covers the pupa’s developing wings.
When fished, the American Grannom Pupa fly is usually presented in a dead-drift manner, meaning it is allowed to drift with the current without any movement. The fly can also be fished with a slight twitch to imitate the pupa’s movement as it prepares to emerge as an adult caddisfly.
