A great summer dry fly
This Dark Green Wulff Bomber # 8 is one of 4 split-wing Bombers tied in the style of Lee Wulff flies. Lee Wulff liked many of his dry fly patterns densely built with a profile of the more traditional dry fly insect-imitation. These Lee Wulff Bombers is a design combining the clipped deer-hair body of the Bomber pattern with the insect-like look of the famous Wulf flies.

Body from deer hair attract salmon and steelhead
All our Tube Bombers is tied with US whitetail deer hair. The material is buoyant but not hollow as often mentioned in books and magazines – in fact, the hair contains a spongy material that keeps the deer well insulated during winter – More importantly, these hairs are great fish attractors and there is no real explanation to this other than salmon and steelhead don’t mind to snack on animals with pelt.
