Tying the Little Cree Wet

Little Cree Wet



The Little Cree Wet is one of my most consistent wet fly patterns, tied originally for Huntingdon Creek a number of years ago. It got its name from the hackle used, a JV Hen neck from Clearwater Hackle's predecessor "Conranch Hackle", in Cree. It has since done well on most all waters I wade. Fished in the film on a greased tipped, this little wet does the trick.
