About the Olive Wulff Trout Fly
The Grey Wulff has always been a popular pattern at Mayfly time, but why not try an olive adaption during the dun hatch?
Fish the fly in the film to imitate the stage of hatch itself, half in, half out of the water.
An efficient killing pattern at Mayfly time. In smaller sizes, down to 18s, it works well for olives.
A pattern Tony developed with the late Geoffrey Rivaz of Hungerford in the mid 70's.
