Wright's Royal

The Wright's Royal was designed by Phil Wright in the 1970's. The fly was designed for fishing the Big Hole River trout but is a great trout fly for trout everywhere. The fly is tied using the familiar "Royal" peacock and red in a trude style dry fly. The wing may be tied with calf hair, elk, deer, badger or racoon hair. The hackle used should either be a Cree colored hackle or the traditional Coachman brown.

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.
