Default simple caddis pupa pattern?

I'm working on caddis patterns this winter. LaFontaine sparkle caddis is pretty easy so are some of the elk hair/deer hair adult patterns
I am looking for a generic easy to tie caddis pattern, any help appreciated
Davie McPhail's version of the ballon caddis looks good , what do you think?

This is really easy and effective. It was developed by Craig Matthews for the Mother's Day hatch on the Madison River:

GUIDE SERENDIPITY

Hook: TMC 5262, # 14-18

Thread: Gordon Griffith’s 14/0 Black

Abdomen: Chartruse Zelon. 1/3 hank, twisted over hook

Wing: White Zelon

I also tie it in Amber, Tan, Olive and Black...sometimes I will mix in two contrasting strands of Krystal Flash...use either spooled Antron or Zelon...it works !!!

Sparkle Pupa work well too...these are an updated version of the original GLF pattern developed by Eric Slagle and featured in the Spring 2006 issue of Fly Tyer Magazine...

I would also suggest John Barr's GRAPHIC CADDIS...Charlie Craven has a great tutorial on this pattern, on his site...

I'd tie the Tabou Caddis Emerger. You don't need the special Chic-a-bou in the recipe. Use the after shaft (philoplumes) feathers from pheasant body feathers.

Stretch Magic can be bought at Michaels, JoAnnes, or Hobby Lobby craft stores.

Here's one you can tie easily, and quickly..
Scud hook; bead; micro chenille; peacock herl.
Clip off end of chenille and burn lightly with flame.

Also if you use the advanced search function, then search for the word caddis in the fly patterns forum here is the result, you might find something interesting here:

Lightbulb Re: simple caddis pupa pattern?

excellent, I knew you guys had some nice ones sashed.
I've been studying all i can of LaFontaine's work.
the philoplumes have intrigued me for years, I'll try some on my next batch. I think there is a fly pattern calling for the philoplume?
so later this evening I'll get down to it.
thanks for your reply

If you like the fly above, it looks to be similar to Fox's Poohpah. Here are some more Poohpah patterns with tying instructions. They can be tied with or without a metal or glass bead

I never knew I could use glass beads for bead heads till I read something in Schollmeyer's book about using glass instead of metal beads. I have tons of glass beads from making in-line spinners, so I'm going to give glass bead heads a try . makes no difference to me if the beads are prone to breaking.
thanks for the patterns guys!

I remember the pattern using the pheasant secondary feather, it is the "Picket Pin"
check it out , it is a very old pattern an early caddis imitation prolly from the Anglers Roost days.

You can use glass beads for caddis bodies also.
