Royal Wulff

The Royal Wulff is one of those flies that seems like its just to pretty to work properly. However this fly works great! There is a lot going on, like what the heck is that red stripe in the middle of peacock? And why the wings the way they are? Well I have heard this fly mimics a red flying ant, which makes sense. These ants usually are bright red and also black. I should know, ive been bit by them many times before. Some species come with red bodies and black heads, and some with red heads and black bodies. Either way, the coloration of this fly I think is trying to mimic this on the ants.

No matter what this really resembles, for some reason it works wonders on small creeks in the summer months. In fact it was one of the top producing flies for me on one of my videos when I was fishing in New Mexico with a subscriber of mine. If you guys haven't checked out that video, go do so. Anyway I used this fly there and it did very well. And other rivers as well during the heat of summer this fly did amazing as well. It really is a great producer.

Now, many find tying with calf fur to be a pain. I dont blame them. Its hard to work with. I have used some synthetic material for the wings as well in the past. I hear on larger sized wulff's some people choose to use white deer hair also. Its up to you, just make sure its white as it will keep the look to this fly.

As you all know, I work closely with both and Both of these shops have offered every one of my subscribers a discount. So go to their shops, and type in "McFly" at checkout for 15% off of anything you buy on their sites. The hooks risen sells are just as strong, if not more strong than the ones I used today in the video. But priced much more reasonably. So definitely check them out.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
