Colonel Fuller Flower

These photos are an artistic effort, something I was inspired to do with a half-dozen Colonel Fuller wet flies. They’re tied on #6 Mustad 3399 sproat bend wet fly hooks.

Canada Wet Fly – macro in middle of 1/2 dozen size #6


Tip: None

Tail: Scarlet wool as a short tag

Ribbing: Gold tinsel

The written recipe for the Canada in Bergman’s book Trout lists a tip of ‘scarlet tag’ but it is more accurately a short tail made from wool. By standard definition this fly has no ‘tip.’
