It must be the long winter, and now the rain, that is making me a little crazy....no, wait, I'm a fly fisherman, it comes with the territory. I picked up this beautiful, blue dyed Whiting grizzly hackle cape today for tying salmon flies, and when I saw the quality of the hackle, I had to tie a Catskill style dry fly with it. So here goes, a blue Red Quill. Imagine if that hackle was medium blue dun? It sure will tie some nice salmon flies, but this is one ugly fly that most likely will never see a trout stream.
Sharpen your hooks!
