Greenwell's Glory trout fly

Description Greenwell's Glory trout fly is a popular old English pattern in green or yellow. It is believed to have originated on the Tweed in the 1850's when Canon William Greenwell asked James Wright to produce a fly that represented the local olivegreen dun found on the local waters. From there it has spread around the world as one of the most enduring and effective patterns. It is produced in both wet and dry variants and there is even a nymph pattern.
