Two Blue Doubles

Tag: UNI-French, Lagartun French Silk
Tail: GP
Butt: Black Ostrich
Body: UNI-Floss
Rib: UNI-French
Underwing: Black fox
Wing: Mallard Duck, 2 toppings

A quick one this afternoon: Two doubles that started with the blue charm as inspiration and a little bit of google image search where I found the wing and GP layout that I thought would work good together.

    Nicely tied Havard, you have infact tied the traditional Blue Charm as it was intended and fished by A. H. Wood of the river Dee in Scotland where he boasted a record of over 3,500 salmon most on this fly. It has many variants and the modern hair wings are very popular to this day.
