WD-50 Fly Tying Instructions
The WD-50 is very close cousin to the WD-40. Everything is the same on the WD-50 except for the flashback and the wood duck wing case. The WD-50 can be tied in several different colors. The most common colors are olive and tan. The Wd-50 is a great fly for picky fish in tailwater rivers. The WD-50 is also a great fly for a beginner to tackle!
The WD-50 imitates either a midge or a small mayfly nymph. Both of which are slender in profile and usually very small. The WD-50 is best when tied in sizes #18-24. The WD-50 can be fished in the film, middle of the water column or deep on a nymph rig.
