Waterhen Bloa

Waterhen Bloa

Fly Materials

Hackle Smoky gray feather from under a waterhen's wing.

Tying Instructions

Instructions Notes:  Pritt used the fur from a water rat which is now protected. 
Edmonds
and Lee used yellow #4 thread which is no longer available.  "Very sparse" means
being able to see the thread clearly through the dubbing.  The hand colored fly in
Pritt's book has dubbing that looks like three days of beard stubble - nothing more!
