Royal Wulff with a Twist!

The Royal Wulff is a great fly, except its really difficult to tie in those calf tail wings. But I have come up with an easier way, that I think actually is better. It makes the fly float higher, easier to see, and is much easier to tie in.
In small mountain creeks and streams, there is one fly that seems to out preform all the others. Of course thats this fly, the Royal Wulff. There isn't a time that this fly isn't in my box with hiking in the back country. Great little flies. I am not sure really what the trout mistake it as, some say a flying ant. But no matter what the trout think it is, it works, and that is all that matters!

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
