#206 Baby Blue - Gary Fraser #206 Baby Blue - Gary Fraser


Tied by: Gary Fraser
Originated by: Gary Fraser

Hook: Partridge CS15 #2
Thread: Black 70 denier
Tag: Silver embossed tinsel
Tail: Silver Dr. blue duck quill
Butt: Silver Dr. blue ostrich herl
Body: Dark blue floss
Ribs: Tag: Silver embossed tinsel edged by silver oval tinsel
Belly: Sparese light blue bucktail
Wing: 2 blue hackles flanked by silver badger hackles
Topping: Silver Dr. blue ostrich herl
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Blue

Notes: This azure themed smelt has all the great hallmarks to become a staple in any eastern streamer wallet. The blue tones in the wing are muted by the badger wing, and when wet, form a strong lateral line on the fly. The ostrich flows freely under the guide on the angler's hand and the current imparting life into the streamer.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
