If I only had one dry fly to use, this is the one. I was introduced to this fly while I was in New Zealand in 2001. The gentleman responsible was from Montana, go figure.
This fly is extremely durable - floats like a cork - highly visible and good in all types of water from spring creeks to really turbulent waters. It works in caddis and stonefly hatches as well as no hatch at all, and it's great in the middle of the day!
The Blue New Zealand is my number one fly on the following rivers; Madison, MT., N.F. Clearwater ID., Bigwater ID., Grays WY., Shoshone WY., Green WY., and the Little Truckee CA., and get this, it's even worked on Silver Creek, ID. You can't buy this fly in any store, it truly is one of a kind! The only negative thing is it takes 20 minutes to tie one fly, and I've tied 100's of them.
All materials are provided except thread (some available for beginners). Bring 6/0 or 8/0 black thread, your tools, vise, and light. If you don't have equipment and would like to tie, there are always some tools and vises available. Sign up at the club meeting or call Dan with at least 24 hour's notice at 336-2933.
