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.
