The Borden's Special has been mentioned from time to time in recent SRC threads. Borden's Special was created by Bob Borden, founder of Hareline Dubbin. He tied the fly to fish for SRC in the tidewater area of Oregon Coastal rivers. It was meant to give the impression of a shrimp. As the pattern has been around for decades, many changes have been made by fly tyers. Bob is a friend and once a frequent fishing buddy and he told me that most of the patterns he's seen tied by others are far too sparse with the hackling. He wanted to entice the SRC so he tied the pattern with long, webby, thick hackling to give the impression of a shrimp. Most folks use calves tail for the wing but Bob originally tied the pattern with Arctic Fox tail fibers. For what it's worth, this is the pattern tied closer to how Bob originally tied the fly.
