Tups Indispensable Dry
Tup is the country name for a ram. This fly was so named because the thorax was made from wool from the hair on the scrotum of a ram, as well as cream seal’s fur and lemon spaniel’s hair. The originator of this fly was R.S. Austin, a Devonshire fly dresser. On advice of G.M. Scues, who rated this fly highly, crimson seal’s fur was later added to the thorax giving it a pinkish tinge. The Tups Indispensible is a great fly to use when pale wateries are on the water. Used for trout fishing.
