Blue Highlander

Hi all, hope everyone is well, was thumbing through the Hardy book and came across this unpublished dressing, it doesn't state or show an underwing, but think it could use one. left the teal off since i am out, and i am running low on hooks for some reason so found this hook in some old saltwater gear left to me by my uncle years ago and liked the bend of the hook so clipped off the eye and filed it down but didn't paint it, and made it a gut eye, got to do what you got to do in these strange times. stay safe and healthy, Cameron

I bet that pattern would look choice on a Blue Heron. Swell tying, Cameron.
