    Default Realistic Pupa

    I found a recipe for a realistic pupa in a fly magazine. I didn't exactly have the right materials but was bored and had nothing to do. Just thought I would post some pix. It consists of scud back for the body, pearl tinsel for the wings, PT and cdc for legs, deer hair for the antenna, and little closed cell foam eyes.


    This is my second one...looks a little more realistic to me.
