Ausable Wulff

Fran Betters created the Ausable Wulff in 1964 and to this day it continues to be a very popular and effective attractor pattern. Tied in his signature rusty orange color as he explains in one of his books.

“After years of fishing the AuSable and other Adirondack Streams, and after studying numerous insects, I had noticed a particular curiosity relating especially to the large stonefly and mayfly nymphs in the rivers of the Adirondacks. They seemed to have a slight rusty orange coloration in the thorax and some red in the heads of the flies. I thought that this might be characteristic of flies on these streams due to the mineral content of the streambeds.”
