New "Perfect Fly" Black Fly Pupa Fly

Black flies don't hatch like mayflies and most other aquatic insects that hatch once
or twice a year. They may go through several generations a year - as many as a
dozen or more. That means the larvae, pupae and egg laying adults are on the
water just about year-round at any one time. You can fish a hatch almost anytime
during the year. You may see egg layers at the same time another generation is
hatching.

The Black Fly larvae change into pupae within a two to ten weeks period of time.
They exist in the pupa stage for about a week or less. It is thought that the Black Fly
pupae change to an adult while they are still on the bottom of the stream and then
rise to the surface in an air bubble to hatch. When they reach the surface, they
immediately fly away. They don't drift on the surface as a pupa like caddisflies, for
example.

Presentation:
You want to present the "Perfect Fly" Black Fly Pupa Fly on the bottom the same
way you present the larva imitation. Black flies emerge in the mornings, not
afternoons or evenings. This can range from early morning just when the sun rises
until as late as noon. That is the period of time frame you want to present the pupa
fly in.
