The Peacock Humpy
The Humpy, most commonly tied in the Yellow Humpy variation is seemingly a less popular fly in modern days. For me, this is a pattern that should be in every angler’s summer dry box. Not only does it float high, even in the most turbulent water but it keeps its buoyancy fish after fish! Tying these bad boys does take some practice. Watching the elegant dry fly slurps from hungry trout makes it all worth it.
Join us every week for Fly Tying Tuesday as we take on a new pattern!
