After a hint from a fellow here on the forums, I checked out Steve Raymond's book titled BLUE UPRIGHT from the King County Library. After reading a few chapters I got so interested that I ordered a copy for my library from Amazon. Got it for rock bottom price. Anyway, I like the way Steve writes and this book is exceptionally good. Alas, most of the places he writes about have been hit with change brought about by population growth and environmental changes. But the few fly patterns that he writes about are interesting to read and perhaps to emulate. The one that titled the book is intriguing to me. Blue Upright! In all of my years of fishing and tying, such as my limited skills are, I never heard of the Blue Upright. The description sound like something I will be playing with. According to Steve, the tying instructions are more complex than the actual tying. Think I will see if I can find the materials and try it. Anyway, the reason for this long document is to ask if anyone out there ln fishing land have tied the Blue Upright and even better, fished it?
