Tups lndispensable - Dry Fly

Tups lndispensable created by R S Austin.

Tups lndispensable

Tup is the country name for a ram and this fly was so named because the thorax was made from wool from the hair on the scrotum of a ram as well as cream seal's fur and lemon spaniel's hair. So are you going to ask a farmer for the ram's scrotal hair? Maybe not! The originator of this fly was R S Austin a Devonshire fly dresser. On advice of G M Scues who rated this fly highly crimson seal's fur was later added to the thorax giving it a pinkish tinge. The Tups Indispensible is a great fly to use when pale wateries are on the water.

It's called "indispensable" for a reason, don't worry about the colour scheme.
