Royal Trude

$2.50

The Trude was originally a wet fly created by Carter Harrison of Chicago, but he added a hair wing and a body of red carpet fiber as a joke during his stay at the Trude Ranch in Big Springs, Idaho in the summer of 1906 and it really took off from there.  Most trudes are now tied with a calf tail wing and golden pheasant tippet for the tail, but this pattern was really the first to spark a revolution in the hair wing style of dry flies.  Of all the variations, the royal trude seems to be the most popular, and we use it for to imitate caddis and ants as well as a general attractor.  The royal trude is still one of the most versatile attractors in the west, and we carry this time-tested pattern is sizes 14-16.
