It is now one of the most successful dry fly patterns on Lough Erne and Corrib.

Green Wulff

Wulff patterns first became popular in Ireland in the Mid 1990's. They were immediately successful .The most popular pattern early on was the Grey wulff which was fished as a spent gnat imitation.Gradually other patterns followed and this green pattern is probably the most popular of them. It is a great fly during hatches of green drake.

This is one of a trio of authentic Dennis Moss Mayfly patterns in my collection. It is extremely popular. Dennis invented this pattern over 20 years ago and it is still one of his mainstay patterns.

It is a must have pattern for the time of year for which it was designed,and very good during the day and for the early part of the Mayfly hatch when the trout are feeding exclusively on duns." (Quote from "Trout and Salmon- The Essential Guide to Irish Lough Fishing" by Dennis Moss.) See also Moss Mayfly Grey and Moss Mayfly Green.

Moss Mayfly Grey

This is one of a trio of authentic Dennis Moss Mayfly patterns in my collection.It is extremely popular in the West of Ireland. Dennis says of it. "This fly imitates the last phase of the Mayfly cycle-the adult spinner or spent phase.I have huge confidence in this and the Ginger mayfly,and whereas the Ginger is the fly for the duns,the Grey is the pattern for the gnat rise.Towards the latter half of the Mayfly hatch,and for the evening fall of spent fly,the Grey comes into its own.It is a big trout fly with a long pedigree.I have yet to fish a lough in Ireland where the trout refuse it."(Quote from "Trout and Salmon- The Essential Guide to Irish Lough Fishing" by Dennis Moss.)
