Greenwell's Glory is possibly the most famous of all British trout flies. It is an excellent imitation of all the olives and because olives hatch through most of the year it is a very reliable fly. It is a suitable adaptation of the lake olive and pond olive. This is the wet version and is generally used with a floating line and long leader to represent hatching flies just under the surface. They are also attractive to chub and can be used when fishing for chub.
This is the wet version of this very popular fly (there is a nymph, dry version and a spider version) and is tied in the style of the original without a tail.
