My take on the Iron Blue Wingless. Popularized by Jim Leisenring, (I believe) he credited G.E.M. Skues as the originator. Skues in turn derived this from a much older dressing. There are references to this fly as far back as the late 1600's...

Not sure why I've been into this stuff lately. Though apart from the aesthetic appeal to fishing them on bamboo rods, the trout still eat the hell out of 'em...

The simplicity of that pattern is elegant and it looks to be very effective. Nice tying.
