I've used the Renegade all over the world in all water types. It is my favorite fly. Take care & ...

Yes, the picture in the hyper-link is the dry version of the Renegade I use. It was developed in the 1930s by Taylor Williams (Sun Valley, Idaho) as a wet fly but has evolved into the dry fly we see in fly shops today. I tie and fish it in a range of sizes from 3/0 to #24, both wet and dry. Sometimes I add dumb bell or bead chain eyes or a bead head. Listed below is an expanded recipe explaining the different versions:
Renegade (wet or dry)
Hook: wet, streamer, dry, salt, size 3/0 to 22
Thread: Black, hot orange, chartreuse
Tag: flat silver tinsel (original), hot orange or chartreuse (hot spot version)
Back hackle: brown, wet or dry, sparse or heavily hackled depending on version
Body: peacock herl, add chenille on the front half the body for the "Super version"
Center hackle: grizzly on the Super Renegade only
Front hackle: white, wet or dry, sparse or heavily hackled depending on version
Head: Thread, black, hot orange, or chartreuse
Bead head or dumb bell eyes: on the wet, steelhead, or saltwater verisions
