Blue Asher

Blue Asher

I stumbled across a pattern called the Orange Asher that is supposed to be good for trout fishing on pressured waters. One site said to try it in different colors. So I thought I would make a blue one. Although it does not have any blue yarn in it is is a Blue Fly. I wont win any prizes with what it caught today Since it only caught Crappie.

Blue Asher is made from Blue flex floss with a White Hackle Glue in place using Loons UV Glue.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
