The Royal Wulff has become one of the most popular and successful dry fly patterns ever created. It was designed and initially tied by the great Lee Wulff in the late 1920's as a take-off of the Royal Coachman, a wet fly of the late 1800's. This buggy, high floating dry fly imitates many different types of mayflies and is great for "prospecting and searching". The Royal Coachman works well in all types of water and for all species of trout. This is one of those fly patterns that has stood up through the test of time and it should definitely have a spot in every fly angler's dry fly box. Available in sizes 8 thru 18 - they all work!
TIP: As with all Wulff patterns, you need to "dress" the fly well with floatant before putting it in the water and, as it gets wet, dry it with a desiccant or Drying powder.
