The Dry Woolly is a pattern that has been around for some time. (A slight improvement involves using peacock herl as a carapace to keep the hackle from slipping.) Many fly tying lessons begin with this fly because of it's ease of tying and the number of techniques that can be taught. With the development of new fly tying materials a new body material has become popular with many tiers. The use of holograph tinsel has added some sparkle and variation to this old stand by.
