Tying The Centipede Pupa

The Centipede Pupa



The Centipede Pupa is an effective year-round midge pattern that has been very successful for me ove the past 2 seasons. Tied to fish the midge hatch along Fishing Creek in North-Central PA, it has earned a spot in my box by fishing well virtually everywhere I tie it on.
