High alpine creeks packed with brookies and cuts’, low limestone brooks with opportunistic brown trout, and freestone streams loaded with rainbows, the Trude Dry Fly is one that will bring them all to the surface. Originally tied as a wet fly but quickly turned into a dry fly, the Trude was originally created in Chicago by Carter Harrison. Offering a down-winged profile that works as an attractor pattern or to match insects like caddis and stoneflies, the Trude is a dry fly that floats well and can handle those whitewater riffles with ease.
The Trude Dry Fly has a bold appearance and is tied with golden pheasant tippet fibers as a tail, a peacock body with a ribbed red floss band, a calf hair wing, and a heavy brown hackle. This design comes together to give a buggy look that can serve you in a variety of water types and speeds and makes a great pattern from the start of spring through fall. A staple for most wild trout situations, the Trude Dry Fly should always be in your fly box.
