Blue Charm Wet

Thread: UNI 6/0 Black

Body: UNI-Floss Black
Rib: :UNI-French Medium Oval
Wing: Black Underfur
Hackle: Keough Hen Saddle

Taking the blue charm down to a #6 trout hook I chose to substitute the wing from squirrel to black underfur and set the blue hackle in front of the wing due to the shape of the hook and the build-up that squirrel makes. But the main colors and composition from the blue charm remains. A great little wet that goes into the large amount of different blue charms I’ve created this winter!

Ray Bergmans “Trout” is a classic that you quickly hear about when it comes to classic flytying. I still haven’t got a copy, but I got some inspiration from the globalflytyer.com bergman collection and have plans to tie up some over winter to get a feel of these classic wet-flies. The bergman collection calls for a lot of material (in many colors) if you want to be true to the original, but I’m going to substitute some as I see fit and what I have available.
