Sulphur hatches are very prevalent in the AuSable watershed. They are fun to fish, as the color of the fly lends itself to being very visible.

Step By Step:
Start thread and wrap a thread base. Return the thread to about the middle of the shank
Cut off a small amount of rabbit’s feet fur and tie it in as shown. You want this to be a small clump, and evenly secured to the hook as this will be the bulk of the body.
Next, stack a clump of white deer belly hair for the parachute post. Make neat wraps with the thread to even out the body.
Prepare the parachute hackle and make a few wraps before securing and trimming the excess.

Additional Tips/Photos:
  • You can use dubbing to make the body as well.
  • The tail is reminiscent of an emergent shuck, making this a versatile fly.
  • This is a pattern that I saw at Gate’s AuSable Lodge and has produced very well.
