Sheridan Lake Sedge Pupa Fly …
This little beauty is the brain child of Ken Baker. The story is that he developed the fly for British Columbia’s famous Sheridan lake but it’s definitely not limited to that body of water. We have used this Caddis pupa pattern in many of the lakes in the BC Interior and when the sedges are active it’s a real doozey!
