A dry fly pattern first tied by Lee Wulff and fished with great success for decades. This buggy dry fly imitates many different types of mayflies and terrestrials, too. A great dry fly for prospecting, it can be fished in slow or fast water.

Review 1 for Royal Wulff
Quality is Key,
November 22, 2014
"It's interesting that this review is timed as I just left a major sporting goods store, after looking at their selection of popular fly patterns. The difference is the quality of the fly. After inspecting the same pattern at the sporting goods store, I am glad I continue to purchase flies from Orvis. I have one requirement of the flies that I purchase, the fly needs to be tied better than I can tie it (catching fish is a close second, but that falls more on me). Orvis flies have always met this requirement."

Review 2 for Royal Wulff

from Rockbridge, MO
"This is my go-to fly in the Missouri Ozarks. Anytime fish are not rising to the surface, I can usually get a few to come up for this fly. Orvis flies are also durable. I caught an entire stringer of trout on one fly."
"As has been my experience with all of Orvis' flies, this is well tied and fairly robust/rugged. This is a classic fly that all anglers should have in their box. Hooked into a spooky Arizona Brown with this fly on my first time out."
"This is the ultimate fly for catching mountain book trout. Fished in size 14 or 16, it out produces any other fly I've tried. Be sure to add a few to your fly box."

nice little rainbow
"I was fishing the Chattahoochee river and saw some trout near the surface. Since nymphs weren't working i decided to give this fly a try. After about 10 casts i hooked a little rainbow and later on hooked a brown but he got away. Overall its a good fly"
"This is an essential fly for any dry fly fisherman. The Royal Wulff is a top fly and classic pattern for a reason... it works! I keep a 12, 16 and 18 in my fly box at all times and I can't count how many trout I've landed with them. Highly recommend!"
"This is a classic pattern that I have used since I started fly fishing. This is a great pattern in the summer when the water is more shallow and the current is slower. It is readily visible on the water and is a pattern of confidence when there are no rises, or there is an uncertainty of what the trout are feeding on."
"I prefer to use the classic flies. Maybe because I have an eisier time recognizing them, their names and their applications. This is a high quality fly. I typically go with this or a Borcher's Drake in the summer when there are no visible hatches on the water. Also, with age, my declining eyesight is probably my biggest challenge to fly fishing. I love flies that have some high vis or parachute type element that helps me spot and follow them in the current. I just hate to spend more than about a dollar or a dollar and a half on flies. I guess I should stop complaining a buy a fly tying kit (just not enough time in the day)."
"Lee Wulff is one of the worlds greatest fly tiers by far. This fly works on all hatches all summer and into late fall. You can use it in streams,creeks,river,or lakes. It simply works. Is a must have for any fly fisherman anywhere."
