POG Caddis Larva

When I was tying the "Ice Pink Larva" I started to play with some of the color combination here is a variation I'm calling the POG Caddis Larva (Purple, Orange, and Green).

Right now my local rivers are too hot to fish for trout.  I stop when the water temperature hit 70ยบ F, so I've not tested this pattern.  If you tie some up publish your results in the comment section.  Thank.
