Greenwells Glory - Dry Fly

The Greenwells Glory is based on the Greenwells Glory created by Canon William Greenwell.

Greenwells Glory

This is a traditional fly that has truly stood the test of time and is used by fishermen frequently. Devised by Canon William Greenwerll this fly is used by fly fishermen throughout the world. It can represent many different species of olives.


Use The Greenwells Glory To Catch:

The Greenwells Glory can be used to catch Brown Trout


As the name indicates dry flies which include Greenwells Glory are designed to float on the surface of the water. Trout dry flies types which include Greenwells Glory imitate a wide variery of flies and insects which inhabit the surface of the water. There is nothing like using dry flies and watching trout and grayling rise to the surface. To purists dry fly fishing is the true art-form of fly fishing, indeed some rivers only permit dry fly fishing. There are some dry flies (e.g. the Popper, Muddlers) which are designed to attract fish by the action of creating a surface disturbance. The flies are made from very bouyant materials (e.g, cork, ethafoam or deer hair, the latter having a generous application of floatant). A Muddler retrieved upwind of a rise can often result in a bulge in the water as the fish follows the fly.

Dry Fly Fishing Techniques With The Greenwells Glory

A dry fly like Greenwells Glory has flotant (Gink is the most popular) warmed in your hand and gently rubbed into the hackles to help Greenwells Glory float and they are usually cast singly on a trout tapered leader. A floating line is used, but with the tapered leader de-greased so that it does not glint and flash light spooking the trout

Special Fishing Techniques with the Greenwells Glory

Treat with floatant and fish on the surface, leaving it to drift or occassionally giving it a gentle tug causing it to move a short distance across the surface.


Greenwells Glory - Fly Tying Dressing

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Greenwells Glory. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Greenwells Glory at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Greenwells Glory yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two Greenwells Glory as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.
