Fly Tying: Royal Chubby

The Chubby, otherwise known as the Chubby Chernobyl as derived from the Chernobyl Ant has been around awhile and just keeps getting more popular as more and more variants expand it's "fishability."

Just about every color combo has been tried. One of the best dry flies of all time is the Royal Wulff, so It’s no surprise that the Royal (peacock and red) color scheme is a good one.

Here is a contemporary "Royal" with ice dub and foam. Tie one up, tie one on and send us pictures on Facebook.
