Grey Wulff

The Grey Wulff is a derivation of the Grizzly Wulff. Both are devised from Lee Wulff's famous Royal Wulff. This latter fly does not really mimic any natural fly, but the multiple colors must be BIG trout stimulants which can make this fly so effective. Certainly the Grey and Grizzly Wulff though can be considered mayfly patterns. All 3 can be very effective Idaho Fly Fishing flies.
