Royal Wulff – Best Fly Fishing Flies
The Royal Wulff was my father’s, Tony Roocroft, favourite dry fly and he used it as a prospector fly every time he started fishing a stillwater or beat of a stream. Since the day I witnessed the success of the Royal Wulff, I have never doubted it. It is arguably one of the most well known and often used dry flies in the World and is not a fly that actually imitates anything. The Royal Wulff’s hackle, wings and colours tempt Trout into taking this fly: just one reason of why it is such a good prospecting fly.

Where To Use?
The Royal Wulff was originally tied by the legendary Lee Wulff. The late Mr. Wulff was one of the pioneers of Fly Fishing as we know it in the modern age, and he did so much for the sport in terms of innovation. The V shaped wing is a trademark of the Royal Wulff, and a few other well known dry flies, and there are many ways in which to tie this fly with synthetic or real materials. It is a great fly to use during a hatch of small midges or mayflies, where Trout are feeding very selectively. This attractor pattern has to be in every fly fisherman’s fly box!
