Yellow Sally Adult

The Yellow Sally hatch on the Bighorn River produces some of the best dry fly fishing of the year.  This Yellow Sally pattern originally created by Dean Reiner of Livingston, Montana is one of the best Bighorn River dry fly patterns for this emergence.  It works very well as a point fly because the deer hair wing makes it float so well.  Drop a small pmd dun or cdc yellow sally behind this fly and hold on!
