• Tups Indispensible Improved Dry

A pattern of great renown, the Tups is a superb Pale Watery Olive imitation, highly regarded and still well used by many fishermen. The original contained a veritable mix of wool from the scrotum area of a young Ram (!), Lemon Spaniel hair, Cream Seals Fur and later, some Crimson Seals Fur which many fishers acclaimed as improving the pattern. Many people think that a flat Pink colour is what is required, but this is not so. The original colour is difficult to recreate commercially due to material limitations (Obviously). This version is a slight variant, using subtle synthetic fly dubbings to recreate the original colours and some CDC in the hackle to improve presentation and floatability.
