Please Note: PayPal is having a problem with the Handling Charge, which should be $4 for every order. For some reason, a few orders are not getting the charge. I have contacted PayPal, but until the problem is corrected I will send a PayPal invoice following any order that does not reflect the $4 handling charge.

When you place your order, please look at the PayPal shopping cart contents to see if the $4 Handling charge is included. If not, please click on the button below. That will make a separate PayPal invoice unnecessary (saving time for both of us).

Handling charge - $4

Hickory Shad, Deer Creek, MD - 10 May 2013

I thought of this fly as soon as the yarn arrived. It's a blue Clouser/Mayfly tied on a size 8 salmon hook. I stopped at Deer Creek on my way to the Tenkara Summit in VA. The Hickory run is just about over, and hasn't been that good this year, but I got 3 to the hand and several good tugs.

Its good to know a blue fly will work. I still need to add a Hickory Shad to my life list.
