Green Drake Wulff Dry Fly, Discount flies, Trout Flies,

This Green Drake Wulff pattern is a fantastic midseason pattern and can be fished in the later part of May on into mid-June. This Green Drake pattern represents larger mayfly species, in North America most commonly, Ephemera GuttulataThe “Wulff” flies are a series of distinct patterns that were developed by Lee Wulff.   This Green Drake Wulff pattern is a bushy, high floating fly. The hatch this pattern imitates normally occur in faster waters, on cloudier overcast days, later in the day beginning at dusk and continuing for an hour or so. These mayflies can produce a “super hatch”.

A super hatch, on the flip side, may be sporadic and occur in varying volume at specific areas of the river, this makes it tricky. Once the conditions are right, the hatch can occur and continue for a number of days. Fish this fly by leaving it with the current allowing it to float through the extent of the water, accelerate it gently over a very short distance, or give it a small twitch or jerk to represent an insect trapped in the surface film trying to escape.   This Green Drake Wulff pattern is ideal for imitating this natural insect, have it ready in selection, the bigger the fly the bigger the Trout.

When fishing any dry fly pattern, matching the color and the size to the hatch are critical, with presentation being the finishing touch to this trinity. Often overlooked is the casting of shadow from your leader, which may lead to spooked fish.   We suggest selecting a high float leader. Additional waterproofing can be given to your fly delaying it becoming waterlogged, by applying a flotant product such as Gink ®.

All flies are tied with American sourced materials including Hareline Dubbin Materials and Whiting Farm's Hackles & Capes and are tied on premium hooks.
