Christmas Downwing Wulff

Here is a variation of the standard Wulff sketched in colored pencil. Taking the advice of a fellow Blogger, I looked beyond the standard dry royal and 'tweeked' it. I believe I am going to try and tie this variation myself and see how it handles. Basically its your royal wulff with a red segmented green hurl body (christmas colors), red head and a bit more wing to cast a bigger above water silhouette.

A nice one.

I love the Royal Coachman series of flies, as well as the Wulff series.

What I realy like about this one Joel is, the little bit of shadow, giving the effect of the hackle holding the fly off the paper slightly.. sweet!! I'm going to have to give that one a shot.
