    My first acceptable Royal Wulff!



    This is the first Royal Wulff I've tied that isn't lop-sided or ugly, although I think I still need to get the proportions right...

    Thanks for the kind remarks, guys.


    Kelvin, to answer your question: you spotted the fact that the tail's not made from moose hair, as per the classic recipe. I didn't have any, so substituted it with hair from the roe deer, winter coat, given to me by a friend. I rather like the effect, although I don't think it makes a difference to the trout!


    To round off, everything else is more or less classic, hackles are from a Whiting Bronze Grade cape, although I used calf body hair, not calf tail.


    Regards,

    Thats very nice, excellent proportions and nicely done. I'd take that to Idaho.

    The proporcions are perfect. Just a few tiers know how to tie a RW on the original way and proportions. The roe deer tail is a nice addition. I love to tie tini RW's which is a funny challenge and incredible effective on trout here.

    Wow, thanks, I didn't think it was that great, although I felt quite good about it. I'm a very slow tier, it took me 30 minutes to tie this one RW, but in the end was time really well-spent. Hopefully I'll be able to knock them off faster in the future...


    I love the classic flies, and I'd always wanted to tie this particular fly properly -- it's one of my favorites -- and like in Argentina, Idaho and wherever else, it works really well in the freestone streams here.


    Regards,
    Kenneth
