Project Description

Royal Wulff

Pattern Description:

The Royal Wulff has become the standard attractor dry in the years since its inception by the legendary Lee Wulff. Hair wings and tail, a multi-colored body, and a heavily hackled collar make this a buoyant, highly visible fast-water fly. I have no idea what makes this fly so attractive to the fish, but perhaps Lee Wulff had the right idea when he suggested that this fly imitates a piece of strawberry shortcake. As complicated as this fly seems it is really just a combination of basic techniques all put together to make one beautiful fly. Start slow and keep an eye on your proportions and you’ll be amazed at how yours turn out.
