Biot Midge Pupa

Add some spice to your pupa life

Biot Pupa


On a trip to one of our favorite cutthroat waters this summer we decided to see what would happen if we decided to match the hatch instead of throw the typical foam marshmallow-like flies that they are known to eat from time to time.  I tied the biot pupa on underneath a big foamer, and it got pretty ridiculous pretty quickly.  I was fishing the olive and copper biot pupa, and at one point in the day I landed 6 fish in 6 casts...  In your face Curtis.

This is a bug that we have been fishing for a few years now with great results, and It's a good way to kind of break up the standard Zebra Midge routine with a cool bug that catches plenty of fish.  This particular pattern in brown and blue does great on some of our more picky midge waters, and the color combinations are endless due to the wide array of colors that are available.  Check out our favorite color combos below the video.
