The adoption of the hairwing patterns that eventually became the Wulff dry fly style began in the late 1920’s in several locations. Although many angling writers credit Lee Wulff with the Royal Wulff, Q. L. Quackenbush, an early member of the Beaverkill Trout Club above Lew Beach in New York is often cited as the creator. In 1929–30 both Quackenbush and Wulff had independently modified the Royal Coachman pattern, particularly the Fanwing Royal Coachman with hair wings and tails. Both Wulff and Quackenbush made the modifications because the Fanwing Royal Coachman proved too flimsy and fragile on rough water.

Tie 10 and bring them to the June chapter meeting.

The topic will be about fishing with two-handed fly rods. Hacklebarney TU Chapter members, Karl and Erik Barton have been fly fishing together extensively for the last decade or more. They will be discussing all the aspects of fishing with 2 handed rods including the history of 2 handed rods, the different types of rods, which rods fit which situations, all the different lines and situations for each, all the different casting techniques, good resources for information and various gatherings that are held each year.  Pretty much everything you always wanted to know about 2 handed rods. You don’t want to miss this one!
