For the first time, this summer I spent a good deal of time fishing blue. It proved to be very effective, especially when fished with a touch of chartreuse/bright green somewhere in the fly.
The day that we ran across one another on the river, I was following Juro through the water and stung a fish on that very combination (chartreuse butt, blue body, black wing). In fact, I can account for half a dozen or so fish that rose to that very fly (a couple of which took while following very good steelheaders through the run).
