Gehrke's Sail Fish Blue Fish-Fuzz Properly
names and matched from the color swatch pictures I took of
the Hundred and sixty six pound Sail Fish I brought to hand
and released in Bara De Navidad Mexico with the Figarro family,
this is a color often used to entice salmon and steelhead
who have haunted the east and western coastal waters before
returning to their rivers of birth. The sail fish was a new
world record that was properly weighted in the boat and released
for personal reasons. It was also the day I set a new world
record for the Rooster Fish which was submitted and listed
until it was replaced by another sportsman a year or two
later, if that.
Blue's are wonderful attractor
patterns and we use them in many Western Steelhead flies, especially
on the Columbia, Clear Water and Snake River drainage system but also
including all the Pacific North West coastal rivers.
Streamers with Hot Blue Over Backs is a highly minnow matching
color for many streamers and original ties. In fact, there are more
original ties that are not listed in books than those that are. This
is a wonderful Fish-Fuzz Color that is included in the entire set.
I use it as much as any other color in the set.
Gehrke's Fish-Fuzz is an ultra-fine fly tying material. It breaths,
flows and mimics every movement imparted to your flies and streamers
like marabou does.
Fish-Fuzz is so alive looking in the water that fish
literally go crazy to eat it. Salt water fishermen are especially impressed.
Your streamers will shimmer and quiver in an electric display of excitement.
Leeches radiate the very essence of helplessness. Wet flies and nymphs
pulsate and wiggle like small floundering insects. Streamers dart like
frightened and terrorized minnows!
Nothing blends with as much realism as Gehrke's
Sail Fish Blue Fish-Fuzz.
