Doctor Blue Rat

Very nice !

Headed to the Ristigouche in early June and this fly will be in my box for sure.

Usual best fly that time of the year is a Grey Rat, but his pattern could rock too.

 

Cheers......Fred

I maybe way off but is that weaved peacock herl?

I would say the tail is a bunch of peacock sword.

I tie the Rusty Rat, a jade green variant and a salmon orange Rat variant. The tails are Peacock Sword in the Rat series. I also vary between silver oval tinsel and gold depending where I intend to use the fly. I have some of these tied up for Northern Maine right now.

 

That Blue Rat is awesome incidentally, beautifully tied ! Blue though isn't generally a theme I would use at home or in Maine.
