LW's Sulphur F-Plus

In this fly tying tutorial, I talk about a really unique dry fly from Loren Williams, known as the F-Plus. Mr. Williams took an effective fly, the "F" fly from Europe, and modified it to make it even better! I talk about the changes during this video, additionally focusing on the fact that different types of mayflies can be tied with this pattern. This is a great pattern featuring CDC, and one that comes highly recommended.
