Scott Sanchez’s book presented a third ultra zug recipe, and I was so enamored with the results of the first two patterns that I replicated, that I decided to tie five ultra zug free-living caddis. As with the others, this is a simple tie and could replace the bright green caddis pupa that take longer to make.
|Hook||Tiemco 2457, size 14|

I raided daughter Amy’s bead collection to obtain the plastic black bead for this fly. Thanks Amy.
