[Video] Tying a Yellow Humpy Dry Fly

Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions and Matt Grobert team up to demonstrate how to tie the venerable Yellow Humpy in this fly tying video tutorial. The Yellow Humpy is one of my favorite fast water dry flies because it floats like a cork. The Yellow Humpy also makes a great dry-dropper fly and can even double as a strike indicator.
