About the Royal Wulff Trout Fly
According to A J McClane, Reuben Cross was asked by L Q Quakenbush to come up with something to replace the fragile wings on the fan wing Royal Coachman. Cross selected calftail and the 'Quack' or rather better known the 'Royal Wulff' was born
Why, it may be asked, do we go fishing? Easily we may say because we enjoy it; easily but inadequately. Our enjoyment has profound roots inseparably attached to the vast interknitted rhythms of life on earth. We are of earth; as every butterfly and bug and fish and flower is of earth so
are we. We have no glory which is not of earth. From earth we come, to earth we return. In fishing as in few other things we have the keenest - indeed ecstatic - sense of this most worshipful relationship. Bernard Venables (died April 2001)
