Thread: Hybrid Imitator

  1. Default Hybrid Imitator

    3 shot jpeg small.jpg

    The Hybrid Imitator is a cross between a Royal Wulff, Royal Trude, Parachute Adams, Spinner, and my own Wonder Bug. I tied it for the dog days of summer and it works well to bring larger fish to the surface. When using this fly it has a better strike and hookup performance than a Royal Wulff, I believe because of the different look and great silhouette it presents on the water - to see what I mean look at it from the underside with a lighted background as shown in the last picture above.

    Hook: Any brand 4X long size 6 to 16 with a fine wire, wide a gape (Mustad 3261)
    Thread: Black6/0 (70 denier) or larger
    Tail: Golden pheasant tippets
    Body: (Traditional Materials) Peacock Herl/Red Floss/ Peacock Herl
    (Non-Traditional Materials) Black foam or Floss/Red Heat Shrink/Black Foam Floss(as presented)
    Legs: Medium to fine speckled white rubber centipede leg material
    Wing: White material made with heat-n-bond and netting
    Post: White Polypropylene Yarn
    Hackle: Tied parachute style Grizzly and Brown mixed.
