The Blue Charm – a salmon fly icon – turned into a riffling hitch fly
The Blue Charm an efficient Riffling Hitch fly for surface fishing, for among other, salmon, sea trout and steelhead.
Tied on superior Mustad 80500 BL. Hooks that we find to be some of the best hooks made for this purpose We have left enough room in front of the head of the fly – so you are able to tie your hitch knot of preference.
The fly can also be fished as a sub-surface fly – In that case just use your normal fly knot We use hairs from a superior quality squirrel. Neither too stiff nor too soft – with fine vibrant action. These flies are classical pattern known to catch salmon in any salmon river – We have made sure that they have been dressed in such a way – that will give you the absolute best riffling hitch performance possible
