Speaking of purple and blue...

Sorry for the image quality. Had to use the scanner but you get the idea. With all the talk of Blue and Purple flies (and the fine fly silverdoc just posted) I thought I would try a Sauk River Shrimp in those colors. This is my first ever attempt at Alec Jacksons great fly and I think this will get some use this winter

Hook: Alec Jackson 1.5
Thread: Purple
Tail: Mix of Blue dyed squirrel and Sea Blue Fluoro Fiber
Body Segments: Ostrich spun with oval tinsel
Hackle: Whiting American Grizzly Cape Dyed Kingfisher blue
