#39 Angry Blue - Monte Smith


Tied by: Monte Smith
Originated by: Monte Smith

Hook: Mustad-Chestertown #3298, #8 (modified hook)
Eye: Silk gut
Tail: Black hackle fibers
Body: Flat blue tinsel
Rib: Small oval copper tinsel, doubled
Throat: Red schlappen fibers
Wing: 2 royal blue hackles flanked by slightly shorter black hackles
Eyes: Small Jungle Cock
Head: Black

Notes: Monte did a wonderful job modifying these Mustad-Chestertown #3298 hooks to work for these streamers. You can see his notes on the process here, and check out another original streamer pattern from Monte.

This is the streamer adaptation of my steelhead fly of the same name. I like using blue in a few patterns as I find it highly effective and under-used.

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.
