.W. Charleton’s “Black & blae”

 
Thread. ...... Pearsall’s gossamer blue
Body. ...... Underfur of a black dog(Denver)& muskrat blended
Hackle. ...... wing covert of a Jack Snipe

“The black and blae with March comes in,
Dubb’d with the fur of black dog’s skin,
And water rat’s blae down;
For wings snipe hackles far excel,
Blue silk it’s rib mimic well,
From some fair damsel’s gown.”
T.W. Charleton

Nice tie.  Same idea as a Transparent Minnow but I'd say easier by using ultra chenille instead of epoxy.
