Why aren’t there more blue trout flies? I have no idea. And while not part of our 2022 name-the-streamer holiday series, this unnamed blue streamer has had a little bit of success for me.
If you have a hard time finding brown or cinnamon colored bear hear, a decent substitute will be craft fur or some of your finer natural bucktail for the topping.
Hook: #6-10 3x long
Tail: White marabou (or wool yarn)
Rib: Silver Mylar tinsel, small
Body: Blue floss
Wing: Cinnamon bear over black bear
