Tied by: Marcelo Morales
Originated by: Carrie Stevens
Source: Forgotten Flies, Schmookler & Sils (1999)

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: White 8/0
Body: Red floss
Rib: Orange floss
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Orange schlappen then blue hackle fibers
Underwing: 4-6 peacock herls
Wing: 2 orange hackle flanked by shorter blue hackle
Shoulder: Barred partridge feather
Eye: Jungle cock nail

Notes: This version of the Blue Devil comes from 'Forgotten Flies' and the dressing is derived from Carrie Stevens' notes. There are several versions of the pattern included in the book and differ slightly from the pattern listed in Hilyard's book 'Carrie G. Stevens: Maker of Rangeley Favorite Trout and Salmon Flies'. The changes from the original are minimal. Carrie tied her Blue Devil's using silver flat tinsel in both the tag and rib. She also used a brown and white barred feather from the ruffed grouse for the shoulder. Marcelo ties his devils using a barred feather from a Hungarian partridge.

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.
