Tupps Indispensable

Ever heard of the Tupps Indispensible ? Its a small very successful trout fly (usually dry) made from pink dyed wool, golden rooster hackle, & yellow silk , but maybe you would like to try the original version.

Wait for it !! THE STAINED WOOL FROM ROUND THE PISTLE OF A RAM !!

How about some more history on certain flies. especially any cooked up for WA fishing ( fresh or salt )

Yes a fella handed me two after watching him fish a small pool of pressured fish that were finicky as hell.

He would flick the fly letting it float around a little with the breeze. 

The fish would rise and flick everyhting he had till eventually he hooked one.

I went on to use the tupps in following weeks. Seeing the fish rise to suck the fly down in clear water was heart wrenching.
