Atlantic Salmon Fly of the week - Blue Finn

This fly was invented by Lane Carpenter, a former professional trout-fly tier while she lived and fished in Nova Scotia in the summer months. It was made to be a cross between two other popular patterns, the Mickey Finn and the Silver Doctor. It is a simple pattern that works well on most of the rivers of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.

Hook: Up eye Atlantic salmon hook
Tag: Oval silver tinsel and pink silk.
Body: Embossed silver tinsel.
Wing: Yellow buck tail over red crystal flash over yellow buck tail.
Hackle: Soft Blue hackle wound as a collar.
Head: Black
