The Purple Haze

Posted by nwflytyer on January 8, 2017

Yes, I have joined the Tribe @ Postfly. Been having fun tying the monthly pattern…

December’s fly was a nifty little emerger pattern called the Purple Haze, not to be confused with the erstwhile Montana region dry fly of the same name.

Collecting my dozen creations…

The Purple Haze (Postfly version)

Hook: Light wire scud, #16-22

Thread: Black

Shuck: A couple of strands salmon pink or off red Krystal Flash

Abdomen: Blue Flashabou ribbed with a strand of black Flashabou

Thorax: UV Purple Ice Dub

Hackle: Grizzly

I wonder what’s inside this time?
