I’ve seen some searches pop up about The Fripple by Curtis and I’ve seen some questions about it. So I dug up the video on how Curtis ties the original. He has recently made some improvements and has released Fripple 2.0. I’ve included that below with a brand new video from Curtis about how to tie Fripple 2.0! Be sure to visit Curtis and Clark Pierce at FlyFishFood for all of their fly tying goodness!
Curtis says, “Fripple 2.0. So if you’ve seen the previous version of the fripple, this is a fairly decent upgrade, but it continues the whole cripples are tasty and easy theory. Tied on the Daiichi 1160, this style allows the butt to hang in the water to taunt the trout, while the wings and thorax float it nicely. Clear Cure Goo Hydro makes the body slice into the water with no tail to impede it.”
