Fly of the Month: November 2020


This is a very useful summer pattern. The Humpy seems to suggest a variety of different insects when tied in a range of sizes. It has buoyancy so can support a nymph in quite turbulent water. The Royal Humpy variation has white wings and is clearly visible in rough water.
