Conserving, protecting and restoring North America’s cold water fisheries and their
Fly of the Month
This Wulff style fly was conceived by Harry Murray of Edinburg, VA. It is very popular
on the mountain freestone streams of the Blue Ridge and southern Appalachians. Perhaps
it will prove effective in our waters. The pattern can also be tied parachute style
with a single post wing. When tying the smaller sizes substitute dark blue dun hackle
fibers for the moose hair.
Harry Murray is the owner of Murray’s Fly Shoppe (704-984-4212). His catalog contains
other mountain trout patterns plus a good selection of smallmouth flies.
