Korn’s Green Lantern is a caddis pupa imitation that has been a very effective fly both here in the NY and out West in the Yellowstone National Park area.

Korn's Black and Tan APF Nymph

Image
A great "all purpose fly" and a good winter nymph.  Tied with a black phase gray squirrel tail, if you can get some.  If not use red fox squirrel instead using the darkest material on the tail.  My buddy Ben gave me a black squirrel tail from one he had shot and I tied up a bunch of these for him.  With or without a bead or wire head it's a great searching pattern on those dark and dreary winter days.  Fish it as a wet fly dead drifted and then swung downstream.
