Micro Copper Pupae

Micro Copper Pupae

Tie this little pupae on a size 14 hook... fish as a dropper from a hopper... works great for Grayling in Mongolia recently.

I think... the size does matter in the river we fish, and the rubber legs and sparkling effect of the dubbing does catch some attention

Material List :

Olive copper wire
Rubber legs - fine
Mllard Barred Flank
 Prism Dubbing
Diamond fine UV resin

 Step by step tying instructions:

Prepare the thread base... if you wish to weight it more, you may add some lead wire

Flatten the wire, tie the wire on

Tie the wire on

 Wind in some Prism Dubbing - olive / caddis / brown or yellow as you wish ( try match the hatch of your river )

Now wind in the copper wire

Tie in a pair of rubber leg

 Dub in some Black - Prism dubbing

Fold the fibers over tie down as legs

Fold over the fibers as thorax

Tie in a pair of fibers as antenna

Fold over the fiber, tie down as antenna

 I recommend Diamond Fine UV resin here to coat the thorax

Drop some UV Resin, dry it with UV torch

Barred the rubber legs... The Pupae is ready to be wet...

Cheers and happy tying
