Today I will be mostly fishing with Royal Wulff’s!
Have a fine and fishy weekend friends.

  1. Hi Barry, That’s a fly that I’ve never had confidence in. I don’t know why, the grey, white and hare’s ear bodied ones have been great fish catchers for me. I must fish it more.

    One thing I have found is that if the wing isn’t the perfect length they can fall onto their face. (Not suggesting for a moment that yours are not perfect) To overcome this I have started tying them with a Wally Wing in place of the calf tail. You might like to give it a go sometime.

    • Hi Alan, Your absolutely right, if the wing and tail proportions are not balanced the fly will tip over. But it is a great fat boy fly especially for fast running water. This and the grey Wulff are always in my box at mayfly time!
