This month's fly is the parachute Royal Wulff. The Royal Wulff is one of the most popular flies of all time. It was created by Lee Wulff. I used this pattern frequently at one time and forgot it for awhile after I used up my supply. I thought about it this week when I was looking for an attractor fly to use on small brookies. Putting this pattern in the film as a parachute can really be a fish catcher during slow times on the river.
