Atlantic Salmon Fly of the week - Blue Charm

The original featherwing version of this fly was developed in Great Britain. Since its conversion to a hairwing pattern it has become known by salmon fisherman everywhere and may well be the most popular Atlantic salmon fly of all time. Although the original dressing of this fly calls for a deep blue throat, some tiers claim it should be tied a lighter shade of blue. Another popular variation of this fly, the Hairy Mary (and no its not named after my last girlfriend! ) is tied with a red-squirrel tail wing.

Hook: Up eye salmon hook
Tag: Oval silver tinsel and yellow floss
Tail: Golden Pheasant crest
Body: Black floss
Rib: Oval silver tinsel
Throat: Deep Blue Hackle
Wing: Grey Squirrel tail
Head: Black
