Sulphur Cripple

Sulphur Cripple



The Little Sulphur Cripple had been in my box for many years before seeing another fly box. For quite some time it was my personal solution to short refusals during the Sulphur hatch on my local waters. With the Sulphurs coming soon, this pattern belongs in your box.
