Blue hackle

Hi all, was flipping through the Hardys book and came across this dressing, and it just said summer steelhead to me for some reason. subbed out the seal for some blue dun dry dubbing and a blue dun indian rooster cape hackle I found in the stash that Ive had for probably 18-20 years, and the dregs of my summer duck, hope it fishes well, cameron

Very nice. I learned something new today. I didn’t know the term “summer duck” meant Wood Duck or why. Cheers.
