Blue grouse flies

^^^ Why I not an ornithologist

Me neither but I do get to hunt them. Back in the day, when I ran a remote trapline, I would shoot and eat several hundred a season. Now, not so much.

We have four species of grouse in Alaska plus the three ptarmigan. We have roughs, spruce, sharpies and what we used to call blue grouse but they changed the name to sooty grouse, they are the biggest.

No shortage of soft hackle up here.

Or shortage of good dining, tho you may have had your fill with a few hundred during trapping season...
