My favorite pupal imitation is Al’s Rat..

Pupa float to the surface slowly, bodies moving feeblely in a swimming motion.

When they reach the meniscus (surface film) they

hang vertically in the film, struggle out of the pupal Shuck and fly away...

Trout sip them in, leaving only a tiny dimple at the surface.(dimpling rise)

Imitate this activity by-dressing your leader to within 6" of the fly to present your imitation just below the surface film.
