Wulff variation, apparently an effective fly in the Sierras; simple, sleek.


hook - Dai Riki 320 #12
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - golden pheasant tippets
wing - calf tail
abdomen - Congo Hair black
hackle - brown

mash barb, start thread at 70% mark (reference point for wing)




clean, stack, measure (hook shank) a clump of calftail




two soft loops (don't let the thread slide forward, then a few more tight ones




trim butts at an angle, then smooth with thread wraps






push the hair up and back, creasing it with your thumbnail; make a thread dam in front with a few firm wraps










split, figure-8, post, lock wrap behind, post, lock wrap behind, Sally
















measure (shank length) some pheasant tippet; tie in and wrap forward, creating smooth intersection with wing butts








tie in a sparse hank of CH; wrap forward to 60% mark, tie off and trim






tie in hackle




wrap, tie off, trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN
