How to Tie a Sulphur Usual

Producer: Tim Flagler

Matt Grobert shows how to tie his Sulpher Usual, a variation of Fran Betters’s “Usual,” on a Dai-Riki #305 size 16 dry fly hook.  As Grobert says of the fly: “The great thing about this pattern is that by changing the color of the body and the size, you can imitate any mayfly dun you wish. The pattern is durable and floats great—after you catch a fish or two, blot the fly dry and restore it with Frog’s Fanny, and it will float like new.”
